I agree, and do not support it in any way (please, don't flame *ME*) I
just have this ..er.. funny feeling that cooperation among small ISPs that
are fighting with everyone else for that smaller and smaller piece of the
pie is not going to be the easiest thing to make work.
I agree.. creating small groups of ISPs that cooperate on addressing in
geographic areas connecting to major service points would be the best
thing in the world. If we could agree to cooperate, we would not have the
quagmire that we have now, agreed?
Business nature (and dog-eat-dog economics) force non-cooperation at the
low (and high) end. Middle men are left to themselves.
