Free Market will take decades to kick in. Most cities only have one, maybe two options.

We've got building regulations so they don't collapse on us, water regulations so we don't get poisoned, electronics regulations so they don't blow up on us, food handling regulations so we don't get sick, etc etc. Not having government is AnCap buddy, and that doesn't work. Even with no government factions build on their own, governing themselves. In an AnCap wonderland, your ISP becomes your government, which is going full retard.
