    Your talking about your service level agreement... and your talking guarantees...

    Well in truth you can not guarantee the way you want on the internet that is a shared packer switching network... the whole idea of packet switch network away to get away from a nailed up ckt path for any one user ..that's not an efficient way to use gotta keep the ckt carrying “payload” data traffic at all times...and this sharing allows the big burst of data at speed...

    You want a dedicated path you're basically back to dial up modem speeds because to have your guaranteed the ckt most of time is sitting idle different than having a dedicated limo or dedicated private plane yeah it's going to be there at a moment's notice most the time is going to be sitting idle and wasted

    The internet fuction like the old party line phone system that everone could be on at the same time.. you just had to learn to share and you couldn't push everybody off

    On that party line..your asking for a guarantee no one will using the party line whenever you want to use it and asking that any phone number you might call will not be busy...

    The traffice is between two point.. not one.. so unless youn get a dedicated point to point circuit between any two points you can't guarantee that the path will always be available or they'll be no congestion that my slow you down or that it might be busy with some ones elses traffic......

    And no matter how much guarantees or how much you buy on your end it doesn't guarantee with the other ends acess.... communications is a transportation service just like an airline or the railroad or a shipping company there's only certain guarantees you can make

    So unless you're willing to help pay for your own private plane to stand by and be available for you 24 /7 to take you anywhere which is outrageously expensive

    You've got to share the service with you pay for different classes of service

    and even if you want to pay for first class service and the airline flies to where you want to go at the times you want to go OK... then ok .. but its not going to go where you want every time immediately..

    Im sorry but im not sure most grasp committed information rate and burst rate.. data does not flow an a steady state...

    the typical way its explained is with the analogy of a bucket of water.let say your have a CIR for water.. it fill your bucket at a steady state.. but your do not use the water at a steady state.. you use it in burst.. the fastest you can drain from the bucket is you burst rate.. this is faster then your CIR.. keep running at you burst rate and you empty the bucket.. now your running at the slower CIR rate the rate that bucket can fill at..the effect is your download rate becomes throttle back ....

    but still there's another thing called over-burst...

    the Internet pipeline come to your house is a shared media with other people and as long as no one else is using a shared media the company wants to let you use that empty bandwhith
    They'll start feeding you data into your bucket at your higher burst rate in other words faster than your Cir because no one else is using it on the back side so they can fill that bucket as fast as you want.. however that overburst to you is marked discard eligible in other words if anybody else needs data you get drop back to the slower speed ...that over burst is flying standby

    And the kicker.. this just apply on your connection to your ISP..because the ISP does not own the Internet end to end so they can only guarantee up to their door they cannot predict what the traffic is on the overall internet no more than you can predict what the traffic will be on the freeway with everybody going for it..your ISP the best is what's called an AS autonomous system in the Internet is made up of multiple interconnected AS’s that your traffic might pass through

    The flip side these content providers like Netflix...if the stream... they need a guaranteed bandwidth all CIR in the pipe end to end passing through multiple AS that your ISP is no control over to begin with and they have to come first and their bandwidth hogs they don't play well on shared media there data is special has to pay a higher rate..

    this is a highly highly highly simplified version of what really goes on I'm not going to get into multicast QoS traffic shaping policies inter AS routing all the different formulas .... traffic shaping is a highly complex subject this is just insane what they're trying to pass ...

    tophat9000 to lifeofgrace
    My question to a liberal is ... is it party on when other pay the bill an do you see Christ or do you see Pilate as your Savior paying you debt?

    Christ die for your sin he payed your debt.. his glory of paying your debt is the world shame for having run up that bill..

    So what's the lesson?.. when someone else is paying the tab it's time to party on and run up the bill and stick them with it?

    But we also have Pilate..the governor in a political populist to secure his own position.. he sent an innocent man, Christ to the cross to satisfy a demanding crowd... do you really want a Pilate in his capacity as a government to satisfy you by using by using another innocent that you being Christ like?

    If money is the devils dung.. why do some want to forcibly spread it around.. and or have people donate it to the Church....

    If your really thought it is was devils dung.. you would tell people to just burn it....

    You don't spread the works of the devil around.. your don't “donate” the works of the devil in the collection plate... you destroy it...

    So is that what I'm being told burn this devil dung I have in my possession???...

    Wow your way off...

    The issue is not selling service.. it selling what called QOS.. Quality of service.... classes of service..when multiple streams of traffic all content during the same time for the same bandwhith ...who goes first and who has to wait and how long.... .

    The Internet is a shared service yes....

    The thing is the big content provides are the biggest bandwhitch hog.. and there streaming service are time sensitive.. they have to go first or..they buffer... so there traffic pushes everyone else out of the way it goes to the head of the line...

    So the isp charged for this priority and if the customer still uses more of the shared common bucket of bandwidth that all the customer must use they the hog get throttled back for a time so other can use there share of the common bandwidth..

    Its like an apartment building having one common hot water tank you can't have one person using all the hot water that leaves no one else with any so you got a throttle the hog back...

    Trust me isp want to make money.. they do this by selling bandwhitch and that is both shared commodity and perishable commodity..

    They want it 100% used an all times... just like an airlines selling seats they want a hundred percent capacity on every flight ..

    So for customer that book early and fly first class there guaranteed a seat and guaranteed to be in front of everybody else ...but that also means that if you need that guarantee ...your abusiness customer has to fly and be there on time to make your money back to guaranteed to be there on needs to pay to the airline for that guarantee ....

    else if you want the cheap rates you gotta risk being bumped risk missing your flight..

    And then its your as a business are responsibility to explain to the customer why you missed your flight and not blame it on the airline because you tried to buy the cheapest flight and took standby..

    Conversely the private guy doesn't care..the guys that can afford to get bumped...gets “stand by “ and get the cheapest rates but they may not get a seat or service as a guy get paid first class rates...but now you're saying everybody supposed to get the same quality of service and you can't charge difference so the bandwidth hogs are going to eat up all the bandwidth and everybody else can be left with the scraps

    tophat9000 to Heartlander

    A true atheist believes in no God
    Atheism is not an argument about if you like or hate God Or Deny the existence of a historical somebody that claim they are God

    I may not like Islam..I deny the truth of Islam and or the divinity of Islam and its false Prophet Muhammad of Islam that makes me an atheist of Islam

    But I do not deny Islam exists... that’s stupid and its irrelevant to the truth or non truth...

    The irony is believers of any one faith is an atheist in the beliefs of all other faith except there’s..just like the atheist that believe in on god what so ever....

    The Bible is full of God renouncing other false gods so God is a mono theist and is one God short of being a full atheist

    Saying something is false it’s different than denying something doesn’t exist

    You have to plan be sure your redundant circuits are not on the same physical path you have to guarantee that you're going on to diverse paths so one issue or cut doesn't bring you down or isolate a look for strategic failure points just think that way

    This cut .. its location and effort put into making it...just bug me... sets of some red flags ... and strikes me as a little odd

    funny remember when dsl and cable was first coming out.. people understood the internet was shared media... people were aware of people that would hog all the bandwidth.. so they had pay for being a hog... net-flicks is a major bandwidth hog... any streaming video is...... now the hogs don't don have to pay any more then you and for being a hog..... in an all you can eat model...

    Ok two bits of insider trivia....

    First the Spock Vulcan character ...Many know the Gene Roddenberry used to be LAPD...and he was a major fan of the famous chief Parker he worked with him

    Parker personality was old school taciturn totally rational logical absolute personal integrity and to what some might think somewhat cold blooded white anglo-saxon Protestant Conservative Republican in the Thomas Dewey tradition.... while Roddenberry was a liberal he deeply admired Parkers strong headed rationality and personal integrity.....the whole Spock Vulcan character and philosophy start is based on Parker a Conservative and how a Liberal that admired him saw him...logical rational.great personal integrity but sometimes heartless cold blooded and a bit of a tight ass.

    On Nimoy.. he was was not Spock.. and was wild sometimes....the rather famous movie from the seventies Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice is a based on a true story and Nimoy is the Ted character

    Not really.. read the article then read between the lines...

    this was a major fiber cable...where it was cut.. was on a part of its route in a very remote area of the the beaten path...and it was buried... per the article heavy equipment was used to dig it up... then its steel casing.was cut

    most fiber cut are it a more accessible area

    This is a bit different... this was a major cable in a remote area...some one had to know the route... picked a remote part of the route so not to be seen (else pick an easy area to get at it)... then took heavy equipment (a back hoe?) out there..(that took an effort in its self to transport in and out)..then dug it up to cut it....

    vandalism is normally just a target of opportunity

    this took some effort and I think that was the point being shown...its a bit different

    Good grief I see some dumb asses on this thread.

    With water you pay for the water you use not for an “all you can eat” pipe to your house.. else you and the farmer are going to pay the same cost for that same one pipe that he uses a 100,000 gallons of water from to ever one gallon you use..

    With electricity you pay for the kilowatts you use not an “all you can eat” wire ...else you and the factory are going to pay the same cost for that one wire he uses 100 megawatts from to ever one you use.

    But when it comes to that data pipe.. by god everyone is just going to pay for the access pipe..not for the data flowing over it... so the guy pulling or pushing 1000 gigs of data for ever K of data you pull or push are going to pay that same flat cost for an all you can eat data pipe....

    yea that makes sense

    Here the deal..if everyone access is the other words no QOS (Quality of Service) like now...(some data flys first class.. some standby..most data in a lot of different classes in between, depending on what you need and what you will pay)....the service will choke. ...Telcom systems are designed on the assumption that everyone will not be accessing at the same time with the same QOS SLA (Service Level Agreement)... its just like the airline or any other kind of transportation service there's only so much space at any one time and so they have to tier the pricing in to classes

    Most people don't know text was invented as a way to make some money with leftover bandwidth..text flys started as the bandwidth “scrapsmeat” made into sausage

    The people pushing the big bandwidth time sensitive apps likes streaming video will hog all the bandwidth and traffic will slow to a crawl...

    It in effect just like the freeway at rushhours clogged with big rigs ...

    Access has to be throttled and que up in some matter.. today the isp do it by QOS cost...

    But what with will happen is in a few years after the internet chokes..

    It will be the government doing the same QOS cost via a tax...
