“FreeCache works by moving content ‘hot spots’ on the web closer to users. This provides several advantages to various parties involved: Users get faster downloads, content providers pay less for Internet-bound traffic, and ISPs pay less for Internet-originating traffic. An example: Say an up-and-coming rock band, the RockLobsters, has a website that has a large file, say http://www.rocklobsters.com/videos/my-new-rock-video.mpg that is 5MB-1GB in size. If it gets popular, they will lose their guitars and homes to their ISP because their bandwidth bill will shoot up. While keeping their big file on their webhost, the RockLobsters change the URL on their webpage to point to: http://freecache.org/http://www.rocklobsters.com/videos/my-new-rock-video.mpg”
