said by KrK:You know that claiming they don't spend for infrastructure is entirely incorrect. Go to the annual or quarterly reports for AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, TWC and read how they EACH spend BIllions of dollars per year on capital projects, expanding & upgrading & maintaining infrastructure.
however the additional use DOES mean network expansion is required... and the ISP's don't want to pay for it at all. They want to charge for usage of it but not build or maintain it---

Yes, I am aware they pay to upgrade. (and maintain) AND THAT IS NORMAL AND HOW IT SHOULD BE. What shouldn't be an issue is the complaining and whining about having to maintain and upgrade their networks and how SOMEONE ELSE HAS TO PAY (more) FOR IT.
It's the cost of doing the business! If you want to sell someone a service or goods, you actually have to provide said services or goods to them.
You can't complain that about how it costs you money to provide the goods so SOMEONE else needs to cover your costs... (Oh but you'll keep the profits, thank you very much.) It's stupid.
They want the cake and to eat it too--- they want people to pay them for usage, and also pay them for all their expenses. In effect they'd love a business model where they get free money. Gee. Wouldn't we all.
