MCI, Sprint, and > UUNET told me they won't peer with *anyone* new. And from my "media learnt" view of US things, I can't wait for the first anti-trust suite :-) But seriously, lets face it, DS3's are "cheap" and these people want more customes no freeloaders. Like us, who are paying $5M+ a year for a trans-atlantic DS3 and Sprint are very insistant that we build a US network based on DS3s to peer with them, even with the obvious fact that we have no US customers and have already paid for a connection which in reality should be matched by the large US carriers, rather than taking the piss once you have this investment. I only mention Sprint, since the others you mention are a tad more sensible, but still slow, while Sprint are in a glacier.
