I¹m pretty sure I didn¹t say specifically that DT and China Telecom were
options. I probably pointed out the lack of delivery problems prior to
using delivery partners like Cogent (such as via Akamai or Limelight) and
that delivery alternatives existed. But that¹s in the past - we¹re in a
pretty good spot w/Netflix traffic right now, though we continue to add
capacity as you¹d expect.
