If sold as packages, akin to TV subscriptions, then I fail to see how the little guy would be hurt. In TV for example I pay £21 a month for a Sky
subscription, yet I am still inundated from all channels, except BBC ones, with advertising. This would be the same model, I assume. Websites might
prefer to be in a particular channel tiering, yet they would still have their own advertising as well.
I also don't buy the fact people will always go for the cheapest. it depends on what you want. For example, before I moved in with my missus, I had a
20Mb/s broadband from Virgin costing me £40/month. I could have had broadband ALOT
cheaper than that, but I wanted the fastest available with
no monthly limits.
Alot of other people in the UK do the same. I could have broadband for as little as £12/month or pay £25/month and get my TV and phone lumped in as
well, yet I chose not too as I wanted a reliable, fast cable connection not some #ty ADSL rubbish that most telco's offer.
I was hoping someone could give me a link to an actual article outlining the plans though, that's what i was after. I got the initial premise but
cannot watch YouTube at work unfortunately and I wanted more detail.
