How about we regulat the Internet like the Electric Utility and charge per 
byte transferred? :)

That would shut down Peer To Peer traffic rather quickly, and it would 
ensure that everyone pays a fair amount for what they use.

I'm only half serious here.. However, I do agree that truth in advertising 
is a good thing.

On a different tact, where I -THINK- the market will eventually end up is 
w/ different classes of BroadBand service, whereby QOS and priority will 
be given to those that wish to pay for it. The $14.95 services will be a 
best-effort, and the $59.95 services will have priority.
