I tend to agree with Mr. Willison.
Jeff Pulver makes a good point in a Forbes article
when he says "I believe it's a matter of when, not
if" providers start blocking VoIP traffic from
competitors across their own infrastructure, especially
on the heels of the Brand X SCOTUS ruling.
"If I'm a service provider offering my own voice
over broadband offering, and I've got the ability
to block my competition, why not?"
Harold Willison, my peer and Director of HSI Transport, Design, and
Engineering at Adelphia, explains exactly why that would not be a fantastic
idea, in the following article:
