Calls from internet service providers (ISPs) that content providers should have to pay towards the upgrading of the internet infrastructure have been labelled "patently ridiculous" by an industry commentator.

The comments from Mark Jackson, editor-in-chief of technology news provider ispreview.co.uk, come after Tiscali’s suggestion that the BBC should pay for improvements to the internet which are necessary to keep up with the increasing demand that is being created by services such as the iPlayer.

"Some ISPs appear to be trying to shift the blame for the sustainability problems of their own economics models squarely at the feet of content providers, which is patently ridiculous," he argued.

He went on to say that before long some ISPs will have to face the fact that their low prices leave little room for modern content.

The news follows comments made by Get Safe Online earlier this week that people should not be afraid of putting their information online, but should be aware of the security issues involved in doing so.
