@zkat it seems "easy" for these cases, but the internet itself needs to be public infrastructure and all our recent models have undermined that
@zkat an illustrative example connecting the dots of how this plays out is cloud storage:
it costs practically nothing to store stuff in the cloud. The thing that costs so much is the transfer. that cost is set by carriers and ISPs and externalised by cloud providers to their customers, or more likely, to their customers' customers.
