I predict that somewhere around 80% of small ISP's won't file.  Many
even know they have to.  

Just think, EVERY block size network.   If you build out for your 
neighborhood and have 10 neighbors... YOU have to fork out the big
bucks, YOU 
are now dead.  You just don't know it yet, because you have no idea on
that the federal govenrment has just taken wholesale control of the ISP

You can bet that any "industry" standard derived will derived with the
from the telecoms to bankrupt as many small ISP's as possible.  

I predict that in 2 years there will not be enough WISP's left to fund
at all, unless the dues  go up on the order 20 to 50 times.
