$20 a month for a dedicated IP is a ripoff. My point here is actually
not about the cost of multicore being added as each user can rate
limit it to curb additional expense, but the cost of actually getting
the thing coded and implemented.
For relays, being able to make more use of available bandwidth would
vastly increase the network speed, furthermore make home clients see
an improvement in their daily Tor usage. It also benefits hidden
service people as they can then run their Tor processes on more than
one core and thus handle higher volumes of traffic.
As a disclaimer, I am of course asking since my company is going live
in the next few months. But of course, that is also where my funding
proposal is coming from.
