I think his objection is to the cost of Sandvines or the like to filter and monitor that amount of band with. Wouldn't be surprised if this was just a card played in negotiations with a hardware vendor.
No, they are just pissed at having to buy new Sandvines and support contracts to filter traffic. Trust me, they ain't cheap.
Not near as old but my packet station running on a Leading Edge XT and a Motorola Syntor still works.

User port on the SX-64, eh? Be careful not to short the 9VAC pins and blow the fuse INSIDE the transformer that has a lower rating than the one on the case. If you do, you can unwrap the tape around the xformer and solder a wire across the diode sized fuse in there.
I had an EPROM burner for the 64 and edited the font 2716 so that I could actually tell the difference between 6,8,and 0. That JVC screen was nice but the default Commodore font sucked.
My other mod was to replace the keyboard cable with a six foot flat ribbon cable. My eyes were so much better back in the 80s.
It's the Brotherhood of God's People that I fear the most. Just last month they topped 512k members.
Seen that too, and the guy found the pipe. This was on an Indian rez and a tribal utility worker. Not that I go for that stuff but it was an impressive display of what the subconscious can do.
I wouldn't call it wild speculation. I'd call that a likely scenario.
We're just a screen saver.
You simply don't have any clue. You can't relate do doing any kind of hard time.
Yes I can. I did about the same amount for stealing long distance calling from Sprint using a C64.
Which is why I'm glad my ISP is run by the Tulalip Tribes. See how far you get sending lawyers after them!
That too. and the NRC or folks that design Interstate bridges. But I think he might be talking about local gov. I know in my area there is a local radio wingbat that loves to rake any minor mistake that the local governments make over his personal coal BBQ just to flame the outrage (the outrage, I say!) of underpaid professionals working in a very aggravating environment for not getting everything exactly right each time. FSM knows we don't in the commercial world.

Reminds me of driving my old '67 microbus. You don't see them rear-ending things often with only maybe an eight inch of sheet metal between you and the bumper in front of you.
Quincy, Washington, US. Get on Google Maps and see if you can see which large buildings are data centers and which are potato warehouses. Hint, potatoes don't need backup generators. The big one is Microsoft.
You owe me a new keyboard.
Please DO keep your one copy of the nuclear launch codes on a breakable media. In fact put them on an old punch card and run it through the laundry a few times. We don't want you using those codes!
