ISPs vs BBC iPlayer: Missing the point?

John 76
Flame

FFS, you are all idiotholes.

The fact that the BBC has upstream internet connectivity that they pay for isn't the point. iPlayer, in one of its forms, is a Peer to Peer network so once seeded the traffic is "off net" from BBC's perspective, so the BBC isn't paying the full transit cost. So ISPs are right to be concerned about this, as they are paying to deliver the content provider's content.

Thumb Up

I'll buy a few of these

One for home, one for my travel bag (VPN back to the UK so no GeoIP problems) and one or two for the office. Nice.

US gov asked Twitter to stay up for Iran protests

Stop

And the US government also tries to disconnect Iran from t'Internet

The US Government won't trade with Iran, not will it allow US citizens, or anyone in the US to trade with Iran. This includes Internet connectivity. So it's 30 years in Federal jail if you sell Internet connectivity to the Iranians, yet we keep on getting these stories suggesting the State Dept is also encouraging the use of the Internet for psyops/free press/propaganda. Make your mind up please.
