I think if the price were negligible (say <$250/month per) then there would be a considerably strong economic incentive to not connect to the switch fabric at all. Smaller peers could connect to a switch/hub that connected by (say FE) into the same port, larger peers/customers can connect through dedicated ports resulting in a lower overall charge per megabit thruput. (20 FE connections * 30Mbit/s sustained each = 600Mbit/s for $5000/month) -Deepak.
