Quoting a phone company interconnection agreement:

   "The Telephone Company will administer its network to ensure the
   provision of acceptable service levels to all telecommunications
   users of the Telephone Company's network services.  The Telephone
   Company maintains the right to apply protective controls on any
   traffic that it carries over its network in order to prevent
   unsatisfactory performance to other users."

Time to talk to the lawyers again, sigh...

Since almost all peering agreements are covered by NDA's, who in the
know could refute him.  Hint: Does a 10 year peering agreement sound
too good to be true?
