You do this over multicast and therefor you can separate the traffic on
(src, dst).

So when will you launch flat-rate voice? I am waiting.

For some reason I find it funny that companies are having different
charging schemes for different services over the same network with the
motivation that the the two services have a different cost base. Why is
the STM-1 with voice in the Telia network possible to charge for with
useagebased and the IP STM-1 not?
