Yeah, that's probably the best idea in this situation. I've been really
interested in BGP but didn't know where to start, I'll read all the books
that you guys put up above and start reading them.
Also, referring to what you said
"If you are not peering with TATA, then your routes would not go to TATA
first.  (unless the next-hop is indirect and that brings up other
fundamental routing things that you should learn about)"
Yeah, I meant that if I was getting a Transit service from them. Like, if
using a DC like Equinix, you have access to countless amounts of
opportunities to use Transits from virtually any provider, if I were to
contact TATA and ask for a transit, I'd set that up in BGP, but I'm
confused on how. I'll look into Fundamental routing.

Thanks!
