"3. further i CAN NOT get service from ANYONE ELSE, because whenever i call ANYONE, they tell me they have 'non-compete' agreements with my shit ISP..." Tell them: No problem! I will pay you $1/m more than I am paying now.
Then have them explain how Ferrari and Dodge Ram trucks are competing for sales.
