But you're talking in the right here, right now.
In a couple years, if someone, ANYONE other than rogers or bell gets a neutral fibre network, the possibilities are endless.

Walter is simply saying that RIGHT NOW it is possible. in the future, definitely possible, assuming current trends don't continue. (I.e. caps, throttling, and not upgrading networks--so.. Bell and Rogers in a nutshell. )

And I'm saying that won't happen. Someone starting to lay fibre and building networks robust enough to provide HD content 24/7 would require exceptionally deep pockets.

Could it happen? Anything could happen and I'd like it if it did. But the reality ($$) is it won't.
