During this whole debate about usage based billing, one idea that’s popped up is the idea of nationalizing the “last mile”, that bit of cable running between the home and the local phone service central office. Of course, the idea of nationalizing any service raises concerns about competition and limiting user choices. What I’d like to put forward is an idea that saves competition, while preventing the anti-competitive practices of current last mile operators/ILECs such as Bell Canada.

Although I'm hearing about it a bit late, I just read on Michael Geist's blog that Rogers is intercepting bad DNS hits so to earn more ad revenue and pretty much break your internet.
