Your so wrong i don't know where to begin. We have exactly one solution for bandwidth. We are not multihomed since there is one single pipe in this area. The local cache solution uses as much bandwidth as our users. Your ignorance of circumstance is obvious and rather pathetic. There is no money from the fed for last mile internet down here. We have to match our capabilities with resources. Its the crap streaming model thats at fault not our bandwidth. We are planning to buy more as soon as we can but it won't be enough. You know nothing about how oversold we are. I don't want a local cache at our headend I want it at the customer level, where it belongs. You don't hear us gripping about youtube its caches to devices not Netflix its crap on crap with them ad infintum.

Other customers are demanding other bits and they don't wan't to pay more to feed others hunger for back to back streams of game of thrones. Its a poorly designed system and its not the isp's at fault its the netflix don't understand how to do things efficiently. And that box that locally caches netflix, it uses almost as much bandwidth as our customers use. Thats straight from netflix. Its crap on top of crap with them.

They are dreaming. We are thinking about throttling them here right now. Why should we let all those other sites suffer due to one service using nearly 75% of our bandwidth. Let them fix their busted streaming model to include some caching ability. I mean really how hard would it be to include some kind of encrypted cache that would store media for a time. They could even sell a DVR service and make more money. The whole premise is a joke considering how its went for them so far with other cable companies.

They always seem to focus on the wrong things. Content providers are so worried that someone might watch something they payed for once, more than once. Must you buy a DVD to do this. People accept that they can watch a dvd more than once but don't require the same for streaming services. Here is a unit that is supposed to cache content and it gets it wrong. Netflix and others account for 2/3 of our bandwidth at times. They(netflix) do offer some type of appliance that will locally cache things at our headend but it still uses a major amount of bandwidth itself. Streaming is inefficient. This is obvious and correctable but no one seems to be looking in that direction. I hate the cloud concept since it doesn't accurately represent the topology of the internet. However to continue its reign on the masses imagination I give you this addtion. Steaming companies don't utilize the reservoirs owned by the people they are raining on to mitigate their impact on the environment. In the old days that would trigger government regulation. Today?

or the law of rules. In those halcyon days of old, when a new tech came along, the government rightfully ignored it. When the tech started to cause problems or started to make serious money they would step in and make sure that the interest of the 'people' were regulated. Now we have tons of unregulated business models and fewer unregulated personal freedoms.
