Somehow I think Randy meant "connected network service operator"
rather than "NAP operator" when he said "operator".  Isn't the
problem in some cases more with overloaded access circuits *into*
the NAP rather than the NAP interconnect medium itself? 

How to measure?  Well, I must admit that I do not have much of a
suggestion there.  Pinging your own NAP router usually will not
reveal much regarding the quality of service delivered over the
access circuit, as the NAP router can fool around with where it
places it's self-originating packets in the output queue on the
access circuit.
