C&W Peering

This is sure to create a number of "big pipe orphans".
I wonder if this will create a surge in multihoming attempts?

How could you discourage that now? Unlike the recent DSL
disasters, you can't just say "buy a T1 if you want reliable
service". Even if you are not a PSI customer, it would
be foolish not to multihome now.

Did C&W consider the route table effects of this new
routing policy?

You must first know what a route table is before you can measure
such a thing. The only thing they saw were the dollar signs they
"thought" they would bring in. Exactly what happens when finance
runs your peering department and the engineers don't have
anything to say about it.

Did they really think that PSI, of all carriers, would be in a
position to start BUYING transit? Yeesh..
