I think if the price were negligible (say <$250/month per) then there
would be a considerably strong economic incentive to not connect to the
switch fabric at all. Smaller peers could connect to a switch/hub that
connected by (say FE) into the same port, larger peers/customers can
connect through dedicated ports resulting in a lower overall charge per
(20 FE connections * 30Mbit/s sustained each = 600Mbit/s for $5000/month)
