Yeah, i'm not crazy about being billed for dropped packets even though I never benefited from them.. Its like pumping gas for your car and just receiving 3/4 of a gallon rather than the whole amount.. It adds up, and its wrong.
But what can you do if you want/need broadband and no landline is available? ATT/Verizon copied each others plans basically and sprint.. Well, if I had a tower in the middle of my house they could compete, but my god.. Signal sucks here..

That's why we would/should need something analogous to the Erie County Bureau of Weights and Measures. They are responsible for making sure that, within a tolerance I'm sure, a gallon of fuel measured by a pump is a gallon. But that's just western New York State. National law would require a national standards/certification agency...NIST perhaps? They certainly have a lot of networking experience as one of they country's prime providers of NTP reference time.
