Comment Re:Wouldn't apply to Netflix (Score 1) 85

Free peering typically means that each carrier sends and receives about the same amount of data - they each benefit equally from the peering. How much data is inbound to Netflix? About 1/10000th what comes out.

This is very easy to fix on Netflix side, just add 20 lines of code to make every client FLOOD /dev/urandom back at Netflix server. Problem solved, lets peer for free nao mmkay?
