The UK ISP vs. the rest of the world ping-pong continues.
Following the recent move by the ISPs ("UK: ISPs Publish New Voluntary Code on Broadband Traffic Management" - here) and the government response ("Your New Voluntary Code" is not Enough!" - here) the content providers join the game.
BBC News reports that "The BBC has always maintained that it won't pay to have its popular iPlayer service prioritised over other traffic .. The BBC is currently developing a traffic-light system to let users see how different ISPs treat its iPlayer service. The details of the system, due for release in the spring, are not fully decided but it is likely ISPs will be rated simply: Red for poor, amber for OK, and green for acceptable".
It seems the BBC doesn’t expect for more than "acceptable" - where is the positive approach?
