Some peering connections might be cheaper then others, and if it went though the more expensive peer it would cost the isp more.
I have never heard that claim from an ISP. My understanding is that it doesn't work that way but I could be wrong.
I say, charge the YouTube bandwidth hordes - not me.
Sure but charge them based on what they use not based on where they use it. That is the key distinction here.
250MB should cost me the same no matter where/how I use it.
It can't be fair or right that if we both use 250MB/month except I use mine on Youtube and you use yours transferring files using FTP that you pay less and I pay more becuase I was on Youtube. It is insane to suggest otherwise.
Does anyone on here really feel that someone who transfers 250MB a month using FTP should pay less than someone who transfers 250MB a month on Youtube?
