Solution - nobody bothers with whatever upper tier the networks put in place, everything stays the same as it is now (except the networks are out whatever they spent building the upper tier and pushing it). The backlash should be against any website that coughs up to throttle everyone else's bandwidth by pushing through their own bits. Leave the networks out of it, focus on the idiots who would consider signing up for upper tier service. If nobody dares to use the upper tier, it will wither on the branch, and everyone can sleep soundly. If this ridiculous idea does gain traction, then I guess we'll have to work harder building out the wireless mesh networks to the point where the networks are irrelevant even sooner than they otherwise will be. Regardless, the best this has to look forward to is fad status.
