Differential CSF Rates-Options (Continued)
Option Two (Packet Billing Model)
- Begin a full-scale “billing for bandwidth” development effort that requires capturing every data packet from every router and allocating the costs back to customers.
- Once this model is developed it could be used to most equitably distribute costs to all PennNet customers
- The model could be used to bill research grants
- Billing this way will probably lower Penn’s total Internet costs.
- Bandwidth management techniques not necessary.
