I’ve been frustrated for a while that Korra is no longer available on iTunes, and now it’s not available on TV, either? I’m really glad that I didn’t start watching book 3 yet; at this rate, who knows if I ever will.
Summing up their position, Level 3 said:
"To be lasting, business relationships should be mutually beneficial. In cases where the benefit we receive is in line with the benefit we deliver, we will exchange traffic on a settlement-free basis. Contrary to Cogent’s public statements, reasonable, balanced, and mutually beneficial agreements for the exchange of traffic do not represent a threat to the Internet. They don’t represent a threat to anyone other than those trying to get a free ride on someone else’s network."
So what has changed for Level 3? Unfortunately, they are now the one “trying to get a free ride on someone else’s network” and failing to “keep the interest of their customers paramount.”
