tiers? (fwd)

Does everyone agree with this, it's the only response I have received
thus far (and according to the list, the sender works for a tier 1 provider).


Tier 1: _Owns the fiber_, Multiple coast to coast paths of significant bandwidth

I don't think OWNS THE FIBER applies, but the rest is valid. I think a major
connotation to Tier 1 is "DEFAULT FREE"... That is they do not need a default
route to handle routes they don't receive through peering relationships.
