Why should a Tier 1 designation decide whether what an ISP can charge for its services? Sounds like communism.

>> No.60120959

It's really hard to objectively compare internet cost in different countries. It's not too uncommon to have the government own parts of the isp business here. How much of it really is built from user fees and how much of it is way or other tax funded? In Finland the whole thing is built on top of FUNET which is university backbone network. The end result here seems decent but is it good value for the money spend I've no idea.

Because they arent connecting for netflix, or to netflix. They are connecting to tier 1 isp's to get the traffic from the rest of the internet to serve to their customers.

How? If Youtube and Netflix paid your ISP for premium bandwidth allowance, they'll be fast while everything else is slow af. How does this help you? How does this do anything for competition other than prevent it?

If I want to start a new streaming service, now I not only need to find decent content for it, but I also need to get the funding to pay off ISPs not to throttle me into the ground.
