You didn't say what kind of 'peering'. That could mean over an IXP or to be

There are at least three types of criteria to evaluate. Technical, business

"Me too" with the rest of the thread. If peering serves your mutual
interests (or just yours even), its an easy decision.

The Dr Peering http://drpeering.net/ website is also a resource for folks
new to peering.
