To my mind there has to be some good effect on user pricing, and in many cases performance as well.
As the ISP drops it to the exchanges once, the user inevitably has lower throughput on the ISP's routers. No doubt the savings there will be party cancelled out by whatever and how the ISP is charged by OR for the service.
I haven't read up on the OR implementation. Does anyone know if the ISP drops once to OR, or once to each exchange that it chooses?
The performance will come down solely to that of the copper from the cabinet. No ISP congestion or backhaul congestion.
It can't be that simple, or that good
? Can it?
