Invisible hand

I wonder, where are those usually defending the invisible hand of the free market right now ? I can't see them anywhere...

I mean, for everything which my country does badly, we are soon getting another mobile carrier, which doesn't seem to want to cooperate with the three others on pricing and has some interesting plans on the infrastructure side. But looking at the three others trying to sue it to hell before it's even there and now claiming that they won't give him access to their cellular network, I wonder if he would have made it without help from the government and the EU...
