""Earlier this week BT hit out at the Beeb, claiming it was unfair that internet service providers had been shackled with huge bandwidth costs to help deliver iPlayer to its customers."
The answer is simple then BT, make sure you charge nothing to ISP's for traffic from the iPlayer, simple!"
It makes me wonder how many times bandwidth is paid for.
I download a file from BBC's website
The BBC pays data transfer costs to their ISP to have the file uploaded from their website, I pay data transfer costs to my ISP to download the file.
So, ISP's buy data transfer from BT, and re-sells it at profit to customers (in this case BBC and myself)...how are they losing money exactly?
