RE: Why do some ISP's have bandwidth quotas?

We've dropped the ball in any place where the broadband architecture is to backhaul IP packets from the site where DSL or cable lines are concentrated, into an ISP's PoP. This means that P2P packets between users at the same concentration site, are forced to trombone back and forth over the same congested circuits. And P2P is the main way to reduce the overall load that video places on the Internet. --Michael Dillon
