Peering - Benefits?

Thanks - I believe the wording meant was "alternative path" versus
connection... in other words if an AS has issues with one or more
upstream providers for whatever reason, you have good chances the
peering connection will remain in better shape (not always granted, but
good odds)....

It would only be a redundant connection if the AS your peering with is a
transit AS. The AS that I work with is a stub AS and can not function as
a fully redundant link.

Just something to watch out for.
