Uh, that is what is being said… The user originated the call, so the CDN shouldn’t have to pay the user’s ISP to
deliver the replies to the users’ requests.

However, the caller also CHOSE to call, even though the called party might find the call irritating. With a CDN, the network is out there hoping to be called, and the user makes that choice, “calling” the CDN. Could it not be accurately said that the user originated the “call”?
