2) Same quota's apply as whatever plan your on? Or does "P2P Unlimited" mean Unlimited?
3) Judging from the last bit, it sounds like your'e adding 40gb to our peak quota for $10 and doing away with peak/offpeak and removing the throttling... is that the best way to describe this plan?
1) It improves P2P speeds 24x7x52.
2) Unlimited means unlimited.
As you can see, no imagination needed.
It's obvious that caching means caching, they plan to hold the data locally.
This in turn means they don't have to fetch the same packets from the USA, therefore reducing load on the international links.
This load reduction means the only data generally going to users is from the cache server across the local network to the user.
This shouldn't require link upgrades, though, as speeds are going faster, its possible they might need to increase capacity with local backhaul providers.
So, the cached data is cheaper to move than data from the US as they don't have to use international sources to get it (they move it within AU).
Mention of caching is in the OP and the email. Perhaps some light reading might help?
