said by funchords:Common sense says that ISPs wouldn't let this happen. They will need sufficient capacity to (at the least) maintain their present customer base, and bring on new subscribers. Would they disappoint their user base to the point of attrition? For me to believe what the carriers are claiming, I would need ignore the history of the internet and how all of the players came to where they are today, and I would need to assume that any ISP that is promising to improve their network is telling a lie.
Okay, PRETEND that I believe (I definitely do not). So what's worse?
1. You can't do the things you want because the Internet is overloaded?
2. You can't do the things you want because your ISP prohibits or limits it?
