Re: AT&T: 15 Mbps Internet connections "irrelevant"
smells to me of "our backbone just can't support that network neutrality stuff. we need to limit all those folk who won't pay us more money." and the hellcos need to get out of their promises of ftth and etth. face it. the packet transport business is in a keen contest for financial unviability with long distance minutes, charging $15 for replicating a cd-rom, etc. and they have yet to take and they don't get that complicating the network to get service differentiation so they can justify charging differentiation will make the business even less profitable. see geoff's apricot preso. when you have a giant company with a broken business model, send in the lawyers and lobbyists to extend it a few years. after all, it's kinda working for the mpa and riaa. randy
