In this episode of PING, APNIC’s Chief Scientist Geoff Huston discusses the eternal tension between content and carriage.

At the RIPE 86 meeting held in Rotterdam in May of this year, Rudolf van der Berg presented a talk titled ‘The EU Gigabit Connectivity Package and How It Will Hurt the Internet’ (video, slides).

Geoff has previously written about the tensions between content and carriage, transit and Content Distribution Networks (CDNs), and the economics of networks but this episode of PING discusses a new twist: Vodafone’s underlying cost and price issues seem at odds with the European operator community seeking to regulate the ‘cost’ side of carrying domestic content.
