Re: the real problem

This is interesting because we already have this speed thing defined in the US for years. We have business ISP accounts as well as consumer ISP accounts. The consumer ISP accounts are usually slower speeds, or have a CAP and drop when you reach the CAP. Same happens with mobile in the US. I am not sure why I would want to limit my connection any further than its pittance speed. I cannot afford netflix, so I believe this is something more than just netflix. The issue is that I do not want my packets slowed down any further because I am paying for the lower price, not the of cost of a stable connection rate of $73USD (£47GBP) per month or even a higher price.
