The good news is that newer DSL devices in some parts of the world are
remotely upgradable by ISPs. Over here in Europe, many operators offer
triple play services on DSL or cable. They use their own CPE and keep
control on them. As much as I hate giving control of my CPE to my ISP, I
must admit it makes firmware upgrades easier for the average household.
You then only need to convince the ISPs, rather than millions of home
