If I acquire content the same time as many other people, since what
I'm watching is some coordinated, streaming event, then it seems far
more likely that the popularity of the content will lead to network
congestion, or push up a peak on an interface somewhere which will
lead to a requirement for a circuit upgrade, or affect a 95%ile
transit cost, or something.
If asynchronous delivery of content is as free as I think it is, and
synchronous delivery of content is as expensive as I suspect it might
be, it follows that there ought to be more of the former than the
latter going on.
Completely agree here.
