Re: If ISPs are gonna do meters....

The video portion of their business, yes. But I was pretty sure the HSI is unregulated, isn't it?

For many Americans they can only get 1 or the other.. DSL or Cable hence creating a monopoly.

That's why I said this in my original post:

...until we can legally provide sufficient evidence that they act as a monopolies and should be regulated...



We may think they are monopolies and they might be monopolies but at this time, the FTC has not taken action to classify them as such and is not imposing regulations. I wish it were different and I agree with you but legally, they aren't subject to any regulation. They also file suit against the FCC whenever they try to impose things like "network neutrality" or any actions that attempt at a definition without sufficient loop holes to let them do whatever they please. Even when the FTC puts conditions on buyouts and mergers, there are loop holes, stall tactics and half-hearted attempts to comply
