Surely connecting me (trenches et al) is just a cost of Transact doing
business? AGL don't bill me to dig trenches to my street when I connect
(they do bill for the little trench from the street to my house), and
Foxtel didn't charge me for the satellite, just the dish.

I personally wont pay for a service where they use my connection fee to
provide service to others -- I expect to pay to have _me_ connected.
