In addition to working around programming costs someone also could figure out how to steal their neighbor's Wi-Fi signal in order to eliminate any cost for programming or broadband fees whatsoever while watching the shows on stolen equipment

For purposes of how telecom costs are inflated I am assuming the customer works within the legal/regulatory system established for buying programming and broadband access

Folks thought Napster was the answer to the high cost of recorded music too - that did not provide a long term solution
