Google/Youtube problems

I think this would be true if they offered some form of paid peering.

Google want's a good fast route to your customers, And your customers want 
a good fast route to Google.

IF Google ran its transit at or near congestion. This could degrade your 
customers performance. After so long, You'd contact Google and attempt to 
troubleshoot. And they would say if you want good peering with them, You 
should pay them to peer. Where you could control just how much traffic was 
on your port and expand it if needed. Pretty sure this was Comcast and 
level3/Netflix did. But Comcast had the winning leverage (more eyeballs) in 
the discussion.

But, I don't think Google does this. My knowledge on AS15169 is limited. 
But I recall them having a very strict peering policy.

WIth my limited understanding of such topics I've long been confused by
something I read a couple of years back - in an Arbor report perhaps - to
the effect that by being the originator of so much traffic, and as they
built out their own network, Google were making money on transit.

Can anyone elaborate or refute?
