If you're confusing peering with transit then excuse me, but by purchasing another hosting business and, therefore, adding to EXDS's already terrible outbound vs inbound traffic ratios it will make obtaining good non-settlement peering even more difficult. A bunch (meaning: most of) the big backbones have peering guidelines regarding what a potential peers ratios must be to qualify. Like in the (out:in) 2:1 or 3:1 range.
