I think the point is that AT&T is pushing to charge extra for additional
bandwidth loads, e.g., Amazon, Google, Yahoo! etc, and this is where all
the Net Neutrality crap began from.
Do you recall AT&T Whitacre's "nobody gets a free ride" statement?
<snip> Whitacre complained that "some people" want AT&T to act as a
"dumb pipe that just keeps getting bigger and bigger."
"This thing is growing at a rate that nobody would imagine," Whitacre
said of the market demand for bandwidth. He said AT&T networks are now
handling 5.6 Petabytes of data every day. "There's more and more
content, and you need more and more bandwidth, and somebody's got to
build it." "If you build it, you have to make a return on that," he
continued. "Nobody gets a free ride, that's all." </snip>
So the point is, if one of your customers subscribes, can your network
handle it? Or will you charge them extra?
