Why is it the role of The State to force these carriers to operate their
systems in ways that don't benefit them?
Actually it is worse because it also means that if I want to spend some
of my OWN money for faster or more expedited access I can't because
someone else may not be able to afford it.

That is the exact problem that the FCC ruling caused.
