Anyone knows a good and elaborate manual on Internet Broadcasting in general and using the Squeezebox in specific?
The owner's manual is, ummm, a bit sketchy and thin for real beginners to grasp what's going on...

Yes, otherwise they wouldn't be able to pay the traffic. Or you wouldn't be able to stream without stuttering.
