Phone shown in the video is a variant of Motorola C123, Calypso Chipset design with leaked firmware source and semi documented dsp

it isnt some dumb phone, its an SDR platform capable of running primitive GSM base station, or sniffing GSM traffic.

This is what happens when you give people unquestionable immunity.

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?

AI analysing video material for concepts/objects/ideas.

How much description would the AI need to produce to get across the intended concept/object/idea?

I dont know, you could test it yourself by .. reading a book and imagining its contents - did it feel like a movie playing in your head?

Never say never. There are ways around this problem.
For example in case memristors/holographic memory/some other magic form of storage is invented we could put 1PB universal dictionary in every computer, compressed material would always use this dictionary instead of adding it to the result file.
Another idea is a strong (very stronk) AI analysing video material for concepts/objects/ideas. Instead of compressing picture RGB values you send description of scenes, object locations and motion vectors, intents and moods. Decoder AI puts it back together and dreams up a video sequence according to the script.
