Who Will Monitor And Audit Broadband Metering?
from the questions,-questions dept
With all the recent talk of metered broadband, there are some questions raised: such as how will the usage actually be metered? As that report notes, broadband providers should not be allowed to meter the broadband themselves, because that represents an obvious conflict of interest — and when it comes to things like electricity and gas pumps, regulations require third party inspectors or equipment to make sure that the meters are accurate and not subject to tampering by the company. So wouldn’t broadband require the same thing?
