Re: FIOS internet - how much faster can FIOS get?
They don't need to force them to directly to peer. Many will do so because it makes economic and customer sense.
Conversely, Comcast and others don't necessarily care that these competitors have slow connections. It serves their interests for them to be purposely slow so that their last mile customers will want make use of Comcast's VOD services vs. buying content elsewhere.
They also can delay router upgrades for the same reasons.
