Re: Generation of traffic in "settled" peering arrangement
> I hate to ask, but are *you* buying into the host transmit charges? > As opposed to client request fee's? i'm not wedded to sender-pays or to receiver-pays. what i want is to end the subsidies that have brought the internet economy this far. granted that we couldn't have come to where we are in a free market, we can't get on from here without a free market. therefore the people transmitting and/or receiving packets are going to have to pay, in micropayments of some kind or in variable rates through a settlement-like feedback mechanism, for the bandwidth they cause others to have to provision for.
