> I have to agree with Doug Barton's earlier observation is that the base problem is that the ISPs are using a flawed business model and they don't want to charge their customers what it really costs to provide them with high speed access, nor do they want to fund additional back-end capacity in their network without some form of offset revenue stream.

I think ISP's do want to charge their customers what it actually costs 
to provide them with a service, but they can't because many ISP's 
business models are based purely on undercutting their nearest competitor.

I might be naive and hopeful to think that operators will have a blood 
handshake to set prices where customers can't wag the tail.
