Apparenlty Shaw, a Canadian cable firm has already implemented a two-tiered system by charging an extra $10 per month to assure quality VOIP service. They’re calling it a Quality Service Enhancement. Of course, you don’t have to pay this fee if you are using Shaw’s own ‘digital phone service’.
This flies in the face of the concept of Network Neutrality which I wrote about earlier. If Shaw gets away with it, will others like Cox/Cebridge or at&t (our two choices here ) be far behind?
