Verizon could save a hell of a lot of money on legal fees fighting the FCC if they just went to a fair, consistent, tiered pricing model on all their internet pipes- FiOS, DSL and cellular.

That would push consumers to pay attention to how much they're consuming. Then, service providers would start paying attention to bitstream optimization practices so they could continue to provide their wares at a lower bit rate.

And finally, network infrastructure would see a slower increase in demand, and build-out plans might actually be able to keep up with consumption levels only doubling every few years instead of every 18 months. What a novel idea...

A novel idea, indeed. A very astute post.
