it's my opinion, we're reaching a point (in streaming content) where those that provide Internet access, should not be allowed to provide content! There's several analogies that illustrate my point: Doctors don't manufacture and sell drugs / medication to their own patients, auto makers don't manufacture specific fuel for their cars, etc... If ISPs were only providing access, I believe we would see a dramatic increase in streaming content availability as well as content providers...at least initially. After several years, the number of content providers would ultimately consolidate down to 3 or 4, and they would all probably have "almost" identical content. This would also allow ISPs to objectively and fairly introduce usage based service as no one could accuse them of trying to protect their "content" revenue. I would also imagine ISPs would sign deals with the content providers so that content purchased through their content-provider partners would not count toward your usage. Thoughts?
