In the age of digital convergence, the separation of networks from each other through the control over their initial access points makes little technological or consumer sense. Keeping others' technical devices off the edge of a network retards innovation, increases prices, reduces usage, and limits content diversity. Just as it became an anachronism for electric and telecom networks, so it will be in time for cable and wireless.
