Re: It's a shame!

...but if the ISP is the only game in town and is throttling Google's traffic heavily without payment, what choice does Google have?

Block all of their IP addresses and put up a page saying;

"Due to the unreasonable demands of your ISP, Google has blocked all of its IP addresses. If you want Google access back, tell your ISP."

Sounds like ESPN3...er...a great idea!

Oh wait...if Google can still make money while paying the ISP, sure, why not.

Because they may be able to still make money while paying ONE ISP, but can they make money while paying 50 ISPs? Or 100? Or 1,000?

As soon as they start paying one ISP, every other ISP is going to whine that it's not fair that Google pays someone else and not them.
