Isn't that how "Tier 1s" have always operated? Like, always? Customers or peers with peers subject to various requirements.

Perhaps. But that's not how *Cogent* works. They have a very idiotic view

paying them for every prefix they accept.
Translation: No one in their right mind does business with Cogent.
