No ones forces you to use google, cisco, microsoft and etc... you use it because its convenient for you...
That is the nature of a monopoly service. Nobody forces you to take a SBB train from Zürich to Bern, for example. But trying to organise your own would be next to impossible. What protects you from massive exploitation when you buy such a train ticket, though, is the regulatory environment. Exactly that is ineffective in your dealings with Big Tech.
