Do you see the QoS prioritised channels being available 
across the Internet or just between specific locations ie as 
a consumer will I be able to view any IPTV channel around 
the world?

It seems to me that the trade off we have with our dismal 
excuses of best-efforts no QoS consumer broadband is price 
and ubiquity. I do wonder whether the lack of support for 
transient customers will become a problem.
