Perhaps Netflix expect this to be an ongoing problem with moree ISPs
asking them to pay to deliver (following Bretts lead ;-), so with their
previous transits experience why would they continue to buy from pussies?
> So why would Cogent offer Netflix a helluva deal?
Previous events have shown Cognet only use live rounds, so why would they
not take the opportunity to get a bigger gun?
Mutually assured domination. Perhaps one will buy the other sometime.
