The problem is that, unlike neutral transit providers, "the bits"
is biased by the CDN provider.

Then, access/retail ISPs who also want to supply their own contents,
even though they must be neutral to contents provided by neutral
transit providers, naturally refuse peering with the anti-neutral
CDN providers.

Remember that CDN providers are not neutral at all.
