this is 50/50 situation. nobody has to peer for free.

but everyone can.

lets just say above 1:1 ratio pays their own ip transit price to 
cogent for paid peering excess amount and both sides monitor traffic

we can solve this issue by becoming middlemen worldwide...

both operators are cheap and they could all compete in quality.

level3 pays comcast reasonable (cheap) price (under NDA maybe?). why 
wouldnt mleber?

but to make it fair, as becomes ww tier-1 operator day-by-day, 
lets just limit pricing to excess amount of traffic

thanks for reading

would appreciate your support
