Is it actually that hard, or is it that the ISPs don't really want to invest time/money into it?

To give you an idea, a net enforcer costs arounds 100K AU$ each, now one per PoP, thats 7 here, however the amount of p2p use, that cost is MORE then recovered in the FIRST month alone!

Yeah, that's what I thought.. and that's pretty much my point - the result doesn't justify the investment :)

Investment in the net enforcers, saving an average of $160K in data costs per PoP, per month, certainly justifies the initial cost outlay, after all you spend 100K once for a saving of 160K per month, therefore thats a nice contribution towards expanding, employing more staff, advertising, and of course company profit (remember... ISP's are not around for your enjoyment,
they are a business out to make money, no profit = no business = no ISP)

But certainly it doesnt justify the investment into p2p cache units, since policies to shape the hell out of the abusers do a good enough job already.


oh.. whoops, misread what you wrote :P
You're right, if ISPs really cared about the customers, maybe they could've invested a little $$ into multicast routers - which would lift a remove a lot of uselessly-duplicated traffic. But what's the point of thinking of what could've been :(

As I understand, one of the recent big problems ISPs are facing is that the "regular users" are joining the ranks of "few abusers." I mean, lots of customers visiting youtube and similar sites. You can't just block them all/slow them all down without repercussions...
