Also interested in this Q.

DTN known to be expensive. I'm assuming it's a FIX API. Apart from that is there a worthwhile difference?

DTN's customer facing API isn't FIX - it's a very simple text-based, line oriented protocol. Like a "dynamic CSV" kind of thing. Really trivial to use. I have no idea what the protocol is between the IQFeed client and DTN, but it's something binary and highly optimized, for sure!
