    Don't know about Denmark but just in my area alone there are 5 different providers.

    No, it's not. That's one of several fundamental errors in libertarian thinking.

    Europe is far superior to the US in terms of political freedoms, and censorship by ISPs is much harder to do in Europe. If there is only one ISP available, then it is likely tightly regulated in favor of consumers in Denmark, since Denmark is a democratic country.

    Whereas in the US, which is a plutocracy, all ISPs are regulated in favor of the ISPs themselves.

    Libertarianism is not necessary in countries where the govt. is accountable to its people (i. e. democracies), which is the case in most Northern European countries.

    However, Libertarianism is needed in countries like the US, which are plutocracies, since without it, private firms simply order the govt. to tax individuals to dump money and resources into their own pockets.
