Kudos and props for offering a service like this. Could basically be abused very easily by some nefarious dev.

So why give props and kudos? It a very bald idea but (and I am talking from my own experience) when offering free services like this; when they really get picked up in no time you can not afford to keep them up unless you start to implement a paid service. In this case that would mean just reselling CloudFront one-on-one. So, cool for now but not really maintainable if you ask me.

In theory there is an arbitrage opportunity here, given that with enough users on the service Jare could be paying for most of the bandwidth at higher tiers ($0.06 - $0.02) and solo the users would likely be in the lower tiers ($0.085 - $0.08).

However, I suspect without an AWS Partner agreement in place, they will be skating on thin ice.
