Basically = AT&T wants to make the Internet become 2 parts, just like phone service = pay for the local loop, then pay for the interconnection (aka long distance ) on a per byte rather than per minute use.
wouldnt shock me because VOIP and Cell Phones made their "Local Long-Distance" bullshit obsolete. when i lived in CT it was cheaper for me to call Seattle then Hartford. so they need to find a new cash cow. -- [65 Arcanist]Filan(High Elf) Zone: Broadband Reports
