They overbuilt it and now that there is so much competition, the free
market isn't working for them. They see more and more people going for
all you can eat connections. I say keep it free and if you don't want
to be an ISP sell to someone else. Google has to pay for all its
internet connections or Google would be too slow. Charge based on
bandwidth, or bytes, but not for what type of bytes you get or where
they come from.
