Maybe the ISP's should move this choice to the consumer. The last mile is
'usually' where congestion really hits. Why not build a portal for
consumers to go in an choose what's important to them? I know some MPLS VPN
providers do something similar (have a portal businesses can use to view and
modify QoS settings). I'd love to be able to prioritize Netflix over
youtube or bittorrent or whatever games my kids are playing since I mainly
use Netflix to watch movies. But I wouldn't like the big guys dictating
what is important to me.
