Imagine if they start charging, say, 0.01 cent per packet. Internet radio would be a waste of money. We'd have to tweak our browsers to do maximum caching, and avoid unnecessary website visits, emails, or IMs. Web surfing would become costly, and VoIP or IPTV would be all but impractical. I have to hope that somehow, market forces would prevent that from making sense for the Verizons and Qwests to do.
