Given the tremendous growth of video conferencing  which strains the 
upstream, I wonder how many calls ISP's are getting because the 
"internet is slow" which is attributable to bufferbloat. Is there really 
anything that ISP can do if they don't supply the ÇPE? What percentage 
of providers do supply the CPE in the form of cable and dsl modems, etc, 
that they could solve the problem with a swap out?
