Re: State Super-DMCA Too True

It's either that or start charging the customer's what it really costs. They've been so happy to get away from that. Large networks have cut their rates based on oversell so that mid-sized networks could cut their rates, so that small networks could cut their rates, so that @home can have service for $50/mo. If @home uses full bandwidth, and each of the networks steps up to meet the bandwidth, either a) @home gets billed no less than 4 times as much or b) any network that doesn't step up pricing goes into Chapter 11. In addition, it's questionable if the overall network infrastructure can handle that amount of throughput. 1.5Mb/s to the house sounds so wonderful, but at $50/mo, it's not really feasible without a lot of oversell. People traditionally base oversell per computer connection (taken from dialup overselling).Using the law to defend deceptive business practices. Makes perfect sense.
I disagree with the method, but who am I to say someone else's business plan is faulty and they shouldn't be allowed to enforce it?
