QOS or more bandwidth

FWIW, I recently heard someone ask the question - "how do you go to your
investors and tell them you need more money for more bandwidth because you
don't want to efficiently manage your existing capacity?"

This is the business case for QoS, IMHO.

Subject: QOS or more bandwidth

While its generally more effective to add more bandwidth than rationing
it with QOS, with the recent downturn in capital markets will QOS become
more popular?  If your budget for bandwidth has been cut, I'm not sure
people will have any budget for QOS either.  But what QOS features are
included in the standard product offerings?
