The link to the entire article is there, and from what I read that is his stance.
I pointed out the article and used it as an opportunity to rant a little about the coercive tactics of some of the providers.
I recognize that, and I did read the whole article. I'm just amazed that Kahn's view seems to mirror that of the big providers. Suspiciously so. Wonder if they got to him?
I don't know, but I do think that access and innovation can be handled differently and open high speed internet to more people.
The bundling of crap you don't want to get access IMO restricts reasonable charges for the service.
For example AT&T advertise $15.95 for DSL but you have to buy telephone service and select a long distance provider to get it. By the time they're done your looking at a bill (taxes, etc.) in excess of $85.00 a month.
I'd rather pay $25.00 or $30.00 a month for the DSL and they can keep their phone service, who needs the extra expense when you have a cell phone?
Cable is just as bad if not worse in some locations.
