One situation that we run into here is how some companies are charged for
internet access. We have a partial T3 line and we pay a fee for every gig of
data we transmit/receive. It's not much, but if you start thinking about
things like streaming audio and video, it starts to add up.

If people are aware of the root issues, sometimes they are more likely to
adjust their behavior.

My former employer used to ask us to limit the number
of mailing lists to the bare minimum. I think the
reason for this was to reduce bandwidth as much as
possible (they requested we digest what lists we're on
if possible). We had some people (who were talked to
by management) who had stock tickers and real audio
streams going all day. Once these folks were dealt
with, we had less of a restriction on e-mail lists.

If you have a limited size pipe, you have to restrict
how much is being forced down that pipe, else you have
a problem. Connectivity for business purposes is top
