Internet should be utility, many providing it don't wnat to be a
utility and so try doing other services usually best left to
specialists

Yes, I like to remind those engaging in peering wars and charging for
access users to be careful when creating reasons for others to become

As a broadcaster we send our content direct to users over the air,
there is opportunity in not making us do so for internet too (though
it already happens, here in the UK Sky TV are a large ISP)
