said by pizz:Sure it's expensive to maintain/manage/upgrade a ISP type network - But money shouldnt be an issue - with all the growth that's been booming since broadband was first introduced in the late 90s.
I seriously think, this is just another way to charge more, for piss-poor management of a company's funds.
The boom you speak of is over. Recent data suggests that new broadband customer growth is nearly over. That means that the CEOs are seeing the revenue line of the graphs flatten out. Unfortunately for the MBAs creating those graphs, Internet usage (and therefore costs) continues to grow. That's what is making the beancounters nervous.
