Just because telecom providers could explore alternate revenue models doesn't mean consumers would pay less. They would probably pay more.
As internet providers expanded their products to provide tiered services, they would likely charge businesses for the highest quality services. They would also charge consumers for their monthly internet subscription.
The businesses would likely pass the internet charges onto their consumers through higher products.
Therefore, consumers pay more for digital products, like Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime etc. They also pay for their broadband services, thereby incurring higher monthly costs overall.
