The whole thing is a farce. QoS/traffic shaping is only used when the network is in bad shape to begin with, i.e. ripe to be picked off by competitors. Adjusting the rules about whether you're allowed to do traffic shaping won't impact the abysmal technical conditions that have to exist for it to be seriously considered. Peering policy has and has had a more substantial impact on network neutrality. All the big networks have closed peering policies. Everyone who doesn't meet the criteria of "we can't force them to pay and would look silly trying" gets roped in to the double-billing fraud where each packet must be paid for both by the content provider and the end user. And any existing peer who dares to defy us by accepting a high rate customer we want to fleece gets punished through the simple expedient of not upgrading the data rates on the peered connections. This was true under the FCC's so-called net neutrality and it remains true now that net neutrality has been revoked. So, this is off topic here; ARIN doesn't do routing and transit. NANOG is probably a better forum for its discussion. But you asked... Regards, Bill Herrin -- William Herrin ................ her...@dirtside.com b...@herrin.us Dirtside Systems .........
