Just one thing... (07.12.22)

The disconnect is between the telecom service providers and the end users. Namely, the application service providers (broadly) and their relationship with the telecom service providers.

The one thing...

From telecommunications service providers to content companies to end users, the entire model needs an overhaul.

What's being said...

If someone pays Rogers $100 per month for cellular service and another $100 per month for internet — not uncommon rates in this ferociously expensive country — it likely means getting one day’s credit for each, for a total of about $6. That is a slap in the face.

Go further...

It may indeed be a slap in the face to those end users who were unable to provide for their employees, their families, their communities, their customers.

The disconnect is between the telecom service providers and the end users. Namely, the application service providers (broadly) and their relationship with the telecom service providers.

ASPs (yes, I know it's an archaic term - stay with me) don't pay to use the nuts and bolts of the internet. If  Meta puts out more content, telecom providers aren't compensated for that new content.

End users, however, do compensate Meta for that additional content.

Does that make sense?
