Unfortunately for Nathan, this above is wrong.
There are very real engineering reasons for not peering
if someone is at one NAP/MAE. Also since Sprint and MCI
do have published policies, if they made exceptions to them
they could get sued for discriminating against some competators
(not all, makes a big legal difference).
Ok, so what about Interpath, CAIS, and a bunch more that are peering with
MCI and are at only 1 NAP?
Probably because they were peering with MCI before the policy, but thats
just a guess.
