Considering what you said about becoming a switchboard, that sounds so true. However, these switchboard giants that already exist seem to have colonized the market.

If we look to the future, we shall be more likely to be successful at harnessing the possibilities of embedded communication systems such as chips that will enable some sort of mental telepathy; as well as control the advertising space which will more or less exist within the minds/heads of the subscribers.

This sort of communication will eventually become free, because the forced media will pay the bills. There will be no essence yanking off subscribers or revoking licenses. This space will be actively fought for.
