Harold Willison, my peer and Director of HSI Transport, Design, and

idea, in the following article:
Jeff Pulver makes a good point in a Forbes article
when he says "I believe it's a matter of when, not
if" providers start blocking VoIP traffic from
competitors across their own infrastructure, especially
on the heels of the Brand X SCOTUS ruling.
"If I'm a service provider offering my own voice
over broadband offering, and I've got the ability
to block my competition, why not?"
