      "MAC VLAN is like a reverse VLAN where a single network connection creates multiple virtual connections with different MAC addresses."

      MAC VLAN just creates subinterface per network connection. You can multiplex your network connection manually. How is that reverse VLAN? Regular VLAN also multiplexes the link to transport many independent layer 2 broadcast domains in an isolated manner over the same link. I found that phrase somewhere on the Internet and I think you just copied it without thinking about it.

        That is, forcing providers to do their bloody part in improving the infrastructure.

        I'm damn sick of hearing that even network providers in developed countries are sometimes unwilling to provide broadband for every citizen.
        Their CEOs should be send to jail for numerous crimes (including embezzlement, seeing as how tax payers are forced to pay for their mistakes).
