Brings up another question to mind, how many of you have peered using
partial route transit versus having direct peering relationship at the
exchange?

I've personally ran into companies during peering meetings wanting to
sell you their peering relationship (access to their routes that they've
earned through their relationship) as opposed to you wanting to
establish direct peering relationship.

This way you don't bare port fees, no colocation cost, cost of IX
membership, etc.

I understand this is not true peering relationship, however its an
interesting way to obtain exchange point routes and I understand this is
nothing new.

Just interested in learning about your experiences.


regards,
