Hi,

This is nothing to do with technology, it never is, it is about cap-ex, money, sales, market share, dominance, internal products, hurting the competition.

While I have delusions about technical people putting agenda aside to work in a co-ordinate fashion on IPv6 I have no such delusions the second a commercial interest enters the fray.

Cogent made Level3 bend over years ago, it will be interesting to see if Comcast can do the same or if Level3 will grow a pair and refuse to be bullied despite the commercial loss.

Ben

Comcast's blog specifically mentions unbalanced ratios as an issue.
