The numbers game
"... accused of illegally rerouting millions of dollars worth of VOIP calls ..."
"... accused of carrying out a scheme that routed more than 10 million minutes of voice-over-internet-protocol calls over the networks of a dozen or so telecommunications providers ..."
"... cost each of the defrauded telecom providers an average of $300,000 in routing expenses ..."
10,000,000 minutes into $3,600,000 = $0.36/min. Are those providers actually saying it cost them 36 cents per minute to route VOIP traffic? And what was with the judge? A (relatively) rich guy looking at a multi-year jail sentence, and they DIDN'T consider him a flight risk?
