DescData Re:Why do they need to do traffic shaping? (705 comments)

May be the whole idea of unlimited access was never realistic. As the uses of the internet when from text, to static images, ..., to streaming high def video, the providers need to thicken the pipe at ever point in the net. The question is who will pay for the upgrade. The existing users or the new users. Why should I pay to for upgrades for someone unlimited need bandwidth?
