Pricing telecom like electricity?

When I dialed up to connect earlier this morning, I was thinking of the similarity between telecom services and electricity ? funda being that both can?t be ?stored? and in both, a lot of idle capacity has to be built. So was wondering if some day telecom would be priced similar to electricity is today in the US! With a take-or-pay agreement or something. Need to build on this idea but let this stub stay here and let you people?s imagination flow.

One thign here – electricity generally has a single buyer – the transmission company while in case of telecom the customers are fragmented. need to factor that in.
