Time Warner Management Mis-spoke!

What the Time Warner executive really means is that as long as there is no competition Metered Broadband 'Inevitable'. I worked for a dial-up ISP whose upper management had dreams of measured usage just like AOL did. Unfortunately for their business plan, by the time they developed an accurate metering system there were so many competitive dial-up ISP's that they gave up the thought of implementing metered service. It took a while but competition forced AOL to give up measured service as well. Broadband ISP's must be regulated or consumers have no chance for reasonable pricing.
