Comcast is buying TimeWarner! If you want to escape the Monopoly What other Options for Internet?

According to an article in Gizmodo the options below are pretty limited:

Fiber optic communication technology has been around since the 1970s and is already used extensively along the Internet's backbone architecture because it can carry up to a magnitude more data than electrified copper wires.

WIMAX WiMax (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) is a wireless standard developed in 2001 and briefly considered as a replacement for mobile data. Today, it is an increasingly affordable wireless broadband internet option with low equipment costs and speeds conventional, wired offerings.

Satellite The same satellite technology that provides television service to 37 million Americans can also deliver Internet access, often with the very same dish. The only problem is, the service isn't nearly as fast as DSL or cable and these systems also require two modems (uplink and downlink) as well as a clear view of the Southern sky.

Fractional T1 A T1 line can be constructed from either fiber or copper but always has a maximum physical capacity of 1.536 Mbps. This total bandwidth is split into 24 equal 64kbps channels. Customers are able to rent any number of the 24 portion total of the full T1 line (or in the case of the larger T3 lines, any of the total 672).

What other Options are available?
