Re: Working Away.....
> "we started with Unlimited, and then moved to tiered pricing which seemed reasonable to us, so we pay closer to what we need. Now, as we use more, we are gravitating back towards unlimited..."

The "unlimited" plans are promotional offers. These kind of offers go back to AOL's "free minutes of internet dialup" CDs that would come in the USPS mail. At first, you'd get a few hours, then the number of hours offered actually exceeded the number of hours in a month for the "limited time free" trial period.... 

Ultimately, for "network effect" services, a business needs to attract a mass of consumers to make the servie useful.. and then, once users are convinced of the value, then the "unlimited" plans go away...

Re: Working Away.....
Not only consumer demand for unlimited data plans will drive the need for the new IP but a big advantage not often cited seems to be the capability "with no physical changes to their virtualized networks means they can loosen up and try out innovative ideas, piloting them, seeing what catches on, with no hassle." Just imagine the speed and ease of testing out new plans and doing it so quickly compared to doing it with the past network technology.

Re: Working Away.....
Batye, 

It's a pity it didn't continue. Maybe there are other ongoing developments, or maybe there will be in the future.

Re: Working Away.....
Thanks for your comments.   If and when you can, please share some of the up and comers that are currently incubating in the University of Toronto who may be potential trailblazers in the New IP

Re: Working Away.....
Are there any "big time" possibilities that may shake up the New IP Space that you can share with us?

Re: Working Away.....
No question about Canada Arm--I've been fascinated with Canada especially as it has given us "Kik" and many others--I am also assuming that the University of Waterloo continues to be as vibrant as ever.

Re: Working Away.....
That would make some interesting comparison of plans in North America. Canada's populations is more spread out of course, but the major cities should be comparable to our similar urban area, and our rural areas should provide a comparison of infrastructure between the U.S. and Canada. Is there less or more urgency in Canadian providers compared to the U.S.?
