Re-engineering the public switched network

  I had a discussion with a staff member of an agency looking at the Bell
  Atlantic tariff filings, and was asked to give some suggestions regarding
  the types of things the RBOCs should be asked to do, regarding
  re-engineering the network to manage bandwidth more efficiently. 
  I said that we were asking Commissions to require the RBOCs to come back
  in six to 9 months with estimates of the cost of changing network software
  to allow users to have a small open connection to a server, like the D
  channel, with "bandwidth on demand," on a as needed basis. And also, that
  they could discuss any better alternatives. 
  Any suggestions on this topic?
