    Even for the phone network, I don't think you've got full isolation of
    end users from partition. For instance, beyond geographical area
    codes, full connectivity is not guaranteed (and not given) on the
    German PSTN. Is this different in the U.S.? Can you really call all
    phone sex numbers from all residential lines (content filters
    notwithstanding)?
