I think for very samll providers were cost pretty much governs
everything, it is quite handy.
I know of a small provider who takes/took a 1G pipe to such a remote
connectivity provider, the pipe is split with VLANs and over one VLAN
they have a remote peering session to a IXP, over another VLAN they
receive a blended transit service and over another VLAN L2
connectivity to other PoP the remote peering provider is also.
It is several eggs in one basket but for very small providers this can
provide a much needed money saving opportunity.
