Re: More Populist ISP Bashing from BBR

said by Bit00:

Maybe we need more internet only ISPs, they would not have any video or phone money to protect.
And that is the actual source of this problem. Our telecommunications providers have become video providers, so none want to be a pipeline for their competitor. That does makes some sense, which is why I'm not totally opposed to metered billing. But it has to be fair, and capping your standard customers at 20GB is not fair. $1/gb overages is not reasonable.

If anyone should be screaming about rising costs of bandwidth use, it should be the smaller independent ISPs that use their own transit, like DSLExtreme. They have very little margin to play with after the gorillas get their share. Yet somehow they're not the ones driving this shift.

I agree... indie ISPs have a tough time out there, but are willing to do this.

I am not against 'reasonable' caps either. TWC's caps are similar to that of wireless cellphone.
