Google Fiber Was Doomed From the Start

I’m writing this from my house in Singapore with 1Gbps fiber at a cost of about half of what it costs me to get 50 Mbps in the US. Their solution seems to have been shifting the last mile to a single government regulated company (the service promptness of which seems often to be open for debate). But once connected, I can choose between multiple competing providers and free markets seem to have done the rest. I could buy 10GBps for not much more than what I pay for my 50 Mbps in the US. In fact I get better bandwidth to my office in the US from Singapore, than from my US house a few miles away…
