Backwards Isn't great how we are going backwards and calling it progress? At one time every telephone connected into the phone company must be owned by the phone company, they even stated the same reasons for requiring this. If a customer chooses to use his own CPE why exactly should he not be allowed? I am not saying that the ISP should be required to support the customer's equipment, just that the customer should have a choice. Of course then both parties need to be competent with the equipment on their own side.
