Distribution of what?

Organisations like LoNAP, Linx along with large transit providers do the bulk of distributing content between the internet service providers.

With dedicated gaming services it is easier as an operation like Xbox Live could partner to include some content on CDN devices in the larger providers networks. Or for example in the case of video, direct peering is set up between the ISP and the hosts own datacentre servers.

No ISP can afford the time and money to macro manage connections to data centres or end-users of one of the thousands ISP's spread across Europe. If you had a contract for linking 2000 offices across Europe and paid the market rate for the support then you might get specific tunnels/routing with pre-defined metrics.

Plus an Ethernet cable will only run a distance of 100m before you run the risk of problems.

To others reading this, even in data centres getting a dedicated cable run between two floors can be an expensive and time consuming task. Let alone doing it to respond to the needs of one demanding consumer who is under the belief their monthly fee is the equivalent of what a firm like Sony would spend to ensure a good connection between a popular network and their game servers.

To others reading this: MrSaffron is suggesting ISP's use Ethernet cables to connect long distances over the internet (not fibre?).
How this has any relevance, just a diversion from the point at hand maybe?

ok its clear you guys cant be trusted too.


The staff from thinkbroadband say we cant play game over the internet so I guess thats that.

thinkbroadband.com suggests UK ISP's cant provide customers with a connection for gaming.

thinkbroadband.com suggests any ISP advertising for gamers are also untrustworthy.]


Your words not mine, or we could stop talking [censored] maybe?
