You said:

"Packet prioritization is only of value when the network is full. QoS is only of interest when BE works badly."

Then, why on earth ALL ISPs are using QoS in THEIR networks to guarantee their own VoIP and Broadcast TV services to their customers???

QoS is ALWAYS a MUST for ISPs to ensure real-time services at any moment. Q-HTTP is trying to open up that window to other third parties.

And about "network state", there are different solutions to implement this, one includes network state, BUT IT IS NOT THE ONLY ONE. Indeed we tested one alternative in our lab with actual equipment....

I don't get it. Are you saying that because there is more traffic, the user is paying less money per month? Yes, profit per customer might be down, but why should traffic volume decrease revenue?

I agree that an ISP can be a micropayment provider and also provice some location information.

Packet prioritization is only of value when the network is full. QoS is only of interest when BE works badly.

I don't get this either. You can't play an FPS with tens of milliseconds of network delay, so you need to locate servers close to the customers to keep latency low, plus you also don't want the access latency to eat up your latency budget so ADSL and cable goes out the window anyway, the only thing left is the sub-millisecond latency of ETTH.

Btw, I think Q-HTTP is a horrible idea. It seems require a lot of state in the network. State is expensive. What happened to KISS principle?
