Re: Caps and overages are different than metered billing
The ISPs are already migrating toward metering service, in no short part due to investor pressure from guys like Moffett. Moffett predicts everything will lead to metered usage, because he wants metered usage.
Seem to me that Moffett (and Kafka?) is suggesting that if regulators dissuade ISPs from capping service, that the ISPs will migrate toward metering service.
Besides, the feds wont' do anything. Ripping people off without empathy and sticking a knife in the side of your competitor (often with the help of the government) is the very bedrock of this great nation.
Metering requires standards that are verified by an independent standards organization or the government. ISPs who don't like regulation are not ready for that.

Most of the ISPs are implementing caps with somewhat metered overages. That is not the same as metered service.
