I agree that only those organizing or with a real need of financial
support (folks from developing countries or from non-profit orgs or
some students without substantial resources) could have their
admission fee waived or reduced, all the rest MUST pay, even if you
give a talk or serve in other capacity.

As others said you are doing a "public service" to the rest of the
community and if you give a nice and valuable talk you will get the
recognition of the NANOG community and your colleagues, and we can put
into consideration including a gold star sticker for your service.

It will be really unfair for those paying (even if their companies do
it for them or don't care because they have a mountain of cash) if
there is a special benefit for some so they don't pay.
