Lowering commissions: Traits to look for in a broker/platform for Hi Freq trading

Does anyone know off hand if there is a threshold or volume where commissions lower because of the sheer number of trades made on any given account?
Related question: If any given strategy is a hi frequency type where many trades are executed, what is the preferred platform or setup for such strategy? What kind of characteristics should I be looking for in a broker or a platform if going down that road?

Thanks in advance to anyone that can comment or throw their 2 cents worth in.

Cheers!
