Toujours cet exemple de #Youtube... qui « lag ».
(Faudrait que je retrouve des exemples datant du début des années 2000 lorsqu’on s’inquiétait de savoir si on aurait assez de bande passante pour supporter la consommation de vidéos en ligne.)
Cet exemple sert de prétexte à un article fouillé sur les accords de #peering et les histoires d’#interconnexion entre #FAI et fournisseurs de service (aux USA et en France surtout) - #neutralité (illusoire) des #réseaux garantissant la #connectivité (déjà relevé par @louije, suivre |>)

“The funny thing” about these disputes is how little money is involved, van der Berg said. The French telecom regulator #ARCEP has found that money changing hands between operators for peering and transit, plus the amount paid to third parties that host Internet exchange points, is equal to just 0.2 percent to 0.5 percent of revenue generated by the supply of Internet access to end users.
En tout cas un sujet pas du tout tabou...
Verizon declined repeated interview requests from Ars, however, as did the majority of companies involved in these disputes. Comcast, Time Warner Cable, and CenturyLink did not answer questions or make anyone available for interviews. Google and Netflix both declined to say anything on the record. AT&T did not respond to e-mails. Three European players involved in disputes—Free, Orange, Deutsche Telekom—did not reply to e-mails. Telefónica responded that “we can’t comment on regulatory cases that are ongoing except to say that Telefónica is cooperating fully.” The FCC did not make anyone available for an interview or answer our questions.
Aussi question de #CDN et du Google Global Cache (GGC) etc.
What he didn’t comment on is whether Time Warner accepts Google’s YouTube caches into its network. But as noted earlier, Time Warner has refused to accept Netflix’s caching equipment. #Netflix may still be hosting its own caches throughout the country, but if they’re not in Time Warner data centers, Time Warner customers get worse performance than they otherwise might.

According to FCC data, 86 percent of American households have a choice of at least two wired Internet providers offering 3Mbps download speed and 768Kbps upload—but that’s not even fast enough to qualify as broadband. Only 34 percent of US households have a choice of Internet providers offering at least 6Mbps down and 1.5Mbps up. The FCC defines broadband as 4Mbps down and 1Mbps up.
“I’ve been hoping for a while that these guys would realize they could enter the over-the-top market,” Bergmayer said. “But we’ve just seen things like TV Everywhere where it’s essentially each ISP runs service just for its own customers and they sort of divide up the country like that.”
