peering charges?

if coast to coast traffic moves over our network twice between
ourselves and the peer, that's not a peer. if the peer has a
number of nap connections and a ds3 ld packet network, that's a peer.

Definitely 100% agree. Now think further, a global network with local
peers all over the place... hmm... how much international bandwidth
that might cost?

the practice that you refer to as 'unwise' keeps us from losing
our shirts in an already-too-competitive marketplace.

Underware as well if you think globally.
