Probably a mix of 10G, 40G and 100G as appropriate.  By 2014, that might 
tilt more heavily toward 40G and 100G.  From what I've seen, most peering 
connections at public IXPs are one or more 10G links.  Private peering 
connections could certainly be higher, if the providers at both ends feel 
it makes good business sense.
