The major mistake that ISPs are making here btw is marketing:
they are not informing their users
I am not sure about this advice.
(I read the forum from vodafone, telekom and unitymedia in Germany
One similar example: VOIP
The Deutsche Telekom has clearly stated what she planned - a complete
ip-infrastructure without ISDN, with marketing and so on...
What was the reaction? The people and also some journalist are against
VOIP. They found 1000 reasons why. Only the Telekom was blamed.
Yes, DTAG "informed" users by doing it sort of the "right" way: They
actively terminated their old non-VoIP contracts. So they send
non-technical users a letter that they are unfortunately forced to
terminate 10+ year old contracts (some of them being on the very
expensive side for little service). All other players in the space
obviously do not want their users to gain a special right to termination
of their contracts because then they might move somewhere else.
