No, but they pay their local carrier. And somewhere there's an IXC

and all. Hell, they even bill their customers on behalf of all those
other guys. And they all want access charges (remember the fights a
few years back?), and then they want a cut what goes over the pipe
which the access charges just enabled. And I stand here shaking my
head, going blblblblblb, wtf.
if i am a paying sbc or other foopoloy voice customer, and i
place a voice call to aunt tillie, does aunt tillie pay sbc
to hold up her end of the conversation?
All because they don't want and can't (sic) accept that the pipes r
us business has been commoditized and evolution must happen for them
to get money out of other services.
Now, if they made bw free, and wanted a cut from the transaction.. I
don't think anyone would object. Pull up the recent balance sheets
and see how much money you'd have to make up to cover the gap. Ooof.
That's my precisely my point as well. It's nutty. There are several
people reading along here who saw first hand with me what sort of
curious models this brought to light..
if i am a paying sbc or other foopoloy dsl customer and i go
to <http://content.provider>, why should content.provider pay
to give the sbc paying customer what they're already charged
Thanks. And tomorrow we'll all wonder out loud why all these guys
haven't been poaching customers in the other's backyard thus far in
what's basically been a decade now since 1996, in spite of having
hardly any regulatory restraints placed on them (about which they
bitch so loudly at home).
what these greedy <bleep>s want it a way to double bill.
your analogy to the riaa/mpa desperation is apt.
