Re: I dont get it

No, I got it, but that analogy isn't great. For one thing, at&t is selling access to the internet, NOT their network or content on their network per se. This is what got them to their market share in the first place. What they're trying to do now that there is an established market is to "change the game". The market would not have been there had it been a closed network like they want to do. Look at AOL. They had a close network and it was small until they opened up to the internet. Soooo, really the ISP are conduits to the larger internet. That's how I see it anyway...
