No. It's more a case of having to use an unreliable, high-cost
transmission medium which gives a highly variable bandwidth.
When the effective bandwidth does drop below useable levels, we have
usually found tons of TCP re-transmissions, and would therefore like to
use these as a criterion for shutting down the line due to lack of
financial viability of the session.

This sounds like a really poor alternative to running a routing
