Ugh, because UUNet will not let them. UUNet wants them to buy transit, not
just exchange bandwidth. UUNet could care less what the delay is, it hurts
@Home much more then UUNet.

Thats great, but what did you replace it with? Some transit connection?
The stakes are high for @Home. They can't just go get a transit connection
because it may threaten peering that they do have.
