Fwd: Link utilization

net neutrality doesn’t apply to the original post, of course they meter the
pipe, you pay for bandwidth (capacity of a data channel), i don’t think
they said don’t torrent or whatever etc very few ISP’s bother as the cost
of doing traffic classification for the most part does not make business
sense, they are saying you are {almost} using more than you paid for, and
the prudent business reaction to this is to try to upgrade you to higher
capacity (upsell) or throttle your traffic.

Now there are issues on what really is the internet, how peering works, how
transit works, where we transit, where content is hosted, how its hosted,
how its metered,* from which points do we measure ‘paid for internet
bandwidth’ *, even so called dedicated link is really just a fast track to
your pocket,…and hey when i pay for internet what does that mean really?
– but that discussion can be safely left for another day….
