Re: QOS or more bandwidth

Altho you need to have different policies for your core and for your
customers.. it may be practical to increase bandwidth on the core and
avoid QoS (which imho should never be employed on the core).. but its not
always within a customers budget to upgrade from low speed circuits.

I think as the prices drop, smaller businesses are coming online but still
trying to use high bandwidth applications. As they are unable to pay for
the extra bandwidth (no matter how cheap it might seem) there would appear
to be a good case for using QoS on your PE/CPE links.

You are asking for projections in a scenerio where bandwidth
demand drops, and bandwidth supply remains constant or grows.

Projection: Bandwidth prices are dropping.  QOS still sucks.
