I've given peers other peer routes before now, but not transit (except in emergencies). I've done it for several reasons:-> We use C&W directly and Verio/Level3 through a peer. a peer gives you their peer or transit routes? randy
1) You can have transit to peers (X, Y and Z) at LINX if I can have transit to peers (A, B, and C) at MAE-East.
2) My bandwidth/routes/whatever don't meet your peering policy but I can bribe you with access to a certain set of routes. [At one time I had a small customer base and a single /19 but very wide spread peering, often with big ASs. In fact I'm pretty sure I had more peers than customers at some points. ;-)]
3) You're a mate, and the marginal cost to me is small.
