Re: [Internet] Feature request: Netflix SuperHD support

These are retarded numbers to go off of. even on standard road runner you could run atleast 2 netflix HD streams with no issues, for them to produce this list of what their servers are sending us is just retarded.

For fun, I'll jump on this dogpile......

You are correct, it's not free. It costs the ISP in terms of space, power, cooling, ports and, to a small degree, hands-on labor by ISP personnel.

On the other hand, streams are going to cross the last mile no matter how they're sourced. But if you can keep thousands of streams OFF your transit interconnects through on-net caching, that savings can be measured in real dollars.

It's similar to the way Akamai works, and if I'm not mistaken, BHN has on-net Akamai mirrors.

Perhaps Open Connect is too new and the technology used by Netflix is unproven. I can appreciate that viewpoint. Once the product is mature and their particular flavor of mirroring passes the trial by fire, I'd be surprised if BHN didn't join in the fun eventually.

Hellooo...

Nothing like this is ever free...they want you John Q Public to think that way and they are banking on you not understanding the bigger picture (and you don't).

Ok. Please enlighten me and don't dumb it down. What terms I don't understand I will google.

As usual Rebus gets it... you left off a couple of cost variables I'll let you go back to the announcement and digest it a bit again and knowing what you know add them in because they are real and things that one cannot ignore. Hint - bits, bytes and other pesky little things....msg me when ya get a moment as I need to chat with you anyway on that other thing we were working on.

Sorry not going to bite at this troll bait apple (nothing against you) but this is one of those things where everyone has an opinion, most of them wrong and I have no intention of wasting any resources trying to explain, re-explain and explain again on this issue.

Suffice it to say we have no plans as of right now for Netflix Open Connect but we do continue to evaluate all entertainment options for you folks and I will let you know if/when things change. I promise

Don't have time at the moment to dig into it, but I know their OpenConnect PEERING requires 95th percentile traffic exchange of at least 2 Gbps to qualify. It also leaves the ISP to backhaul the traffic away from the exchange points and into the local market.

What I was talking about (granted, I did not necessarily make this clear) in my original post is their OpenConnect appliance which gets installed on-net. That's what I meant with my comment about how Akamai does it.
