Give example of other industry where such goverment intervention happened and has helped that industry? And what goverment exactly are we talking about - US Goverment? France Goverment? China Goverment? This is internet - its rules should not be based purely on decision of one single goverment. Perhaps an idea would be to write an advisery RFC on establishment of peering relationships by ISPs. While advisery does not mean everyone will follow, it'll allow groups within a company that are interested in more peering (network engineers..) to backup their words by an established internet standard. -- William Leibzon Elan Communications Inc.
