    Traffic sources tend to be concentrated in large data centers (easier to
    service), while traffic sinks (DSL, cable, wireless) are widespread and
    costly to upgrade. The sink customers don't want to pay more (and
    there's at least some competition), so the sink providers look to see
    where else they get income to pay for their needed network upgrades.

    I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
