    Strange charging model, if you ask me. If "somebody" hogs the connection,
    causing my data streams to need retransmissions, I get charged. If I happen
    to surf to <http://www.some.exciting.site.org> as the first customer today,
    I get charged, everybody else gets it for free off the cache.
