Allot intros big bandwidth shaper

Mark Henry

ISP's are businesses

Service providers will absolutely implement some form of bandwidth shaping most already do. The ones that don't quickly become victims of their own success. Bandwidth hungry customers pile into an ISP that does not traffic shape then the QOS goes down, no surprise there. From my point of view best endeavour service is rubbish I want to pay for a guaranteed service. I want ringfenced bandwidth at peak hour and as much as I can eat the rest of the time, I want video conferencing (skype messenger ichat, whatever) to work all the time. My Kids want low latency for gaming.

So ISP's should just get on with it develop the business model. Sell me TV (finally compete with sky please), guarantee me a minimum QOS, give me all I can eat off peak. People will pay for the quality in QOS.

The most interesting business models will bring the price back down, the partnerships etc.

An internet of the people for the people and by the people is a fantasy its a business and will run that way.

FCC chair sides with GoYaSkypIntel in broadband wireless battle

Not sure what they hope to achieve

Creating an open access mobile network a la fixed internet great idea. However the net neutrality debate gets a bit hotter in the mobile space. Any operator of this network will immediately become a victim of their own success, as people are freely connecting using their own services.

How do you attribute the right cost/revenue to the right user to allow you to invest in the network so that it performs adequately?

Who says this spectrum won't sell for Billions anyway? Apart from the economics of telecoms no longer supports such lunacy. Still going to cost a lot.

So this "open" network will be expensive when compared to fixed access, may have varying levels of QOS for service categories and will no doubt involve some throttling of blacklisted services such as p2p.

Doesn't sound so great now does it.........
