Re: 95th Percentile again (was RE: C&W Peering Problem?)
> $1 per gigabyte is equivalent to $316/Mbit fairly averaged. Yes, but: Let's assume that someone sells at $1/gig, then is billed $316/mb/s/mon by thier provider. Let's further assume that the customer who is buying at $1/gig is averaging 1 mb/s, but has perfect sine-wave bandwidth usage, ie, 0 kb/s at midnight, 1 mb/s at 6a, 2 mb/s and noon, 1 mb/s at 6p, and 0 mb/s again at midnight. (Agreeing that a perfect sine wave of usage is mostly unlikely, but it's a reasonable assumption that said customer won't be at the average all month). Problem: Provider is billed for 2 mb/s.
