Re: Yes, with some caveats.
said by jsz0:So netflix has to pay you for being popular to your customers who are paying you so they can get to netflix, as well as paying the folks who provide netflix service to get enough bandwidth to feed your people.
1) For example if you monitor your edge bandwidth and find out 10% of all traffic is NetFlix streaming it would be reasonable to ask Netflix to pay some portion of the upgrade cost.
So do you break down all your traffic and send out thousands of bills to everyone that your customers touch that are not under your control? Or just to the rich and popular providers? What about popular sites that do not make a lot, if any, profit?
I am not lost, I find myself every time.

^^ That's why I mentioned it should only apply to very high volume traffic. At that point both the content provider and the ISP are getting a benefit from the service so why not make sure it can be delivered to as many customers as possible with the best possible experience? Also why I think it should be a business choice -- not a government requirement. Both companies need to look at it and see if a deal makes sense for their mutual interests.
