It will certainly cause an imbalance in traffic. It also means money
The two aren't neccessarily related mind you: the size of the traffic
imbalance is probably moer affected by the assymetries in where people
go in general to get content. This used to be 5:1 or worse offshore:onshore
before the net explosion anyway, so I don't think you can blame adult or
censor-avoiding content for the imbalance.
the financial impacts, thats a different domain.
for about 4 gigs of traffic a month.
remember the bitrates quoted in the UUnet peering document are per/sec and
if you multiply bits/sec to bytes, and then seconds to months, you will find
that 4Gb/month can be achieved down a 19.2kbaud modem link. Peering requirement
was for (in AsiaPacific) 12 megabits per second of interchange. thats 3
decimal orders of magnitude difference between Robins effect as a mover
offshore, and the carriers exchange requirements. I don't believe a thousand
Robins moved their data.
