This is why I spoke of merely intercepting web traffic to inform, to not interrupt other services that may use the same link. I am in the same situation myself, sharing lots of stuff via the same fiber to my house. I even have TV through it.

So I actually thought of that.

And an ISP probably knows a bit more about their customer base
than what we do, so this idea would ofcourse have to adapt to
that. But as said, its a complicated matter and probably not a
good idea either way before we know who is supposed to do what
and for whom.
