Provider A has host/service/user traffic that we will call "Blue Bricks"It does not.
You have forgotten that provider A's customers are asking to get those blue bricks. Is he supposed to stop providing this customers the desired bricks just 'cause he doesn't have enough bricks to get Provider B?
You also forgot that Providers A & B aren't meeting on a street corner. They're meeting on opposite ends of the continent, or even the planet. Provider A might be carrying those blue bricks a LOT further than Provider B is. Now we have a problem 'cause weight times distance equals backache.
You also forgot that Providers A & B have to pay cab fare to get to those geographically dispersed corners. One might have to take the cab a lot longer than the other, incurring more time & money.
You also forgot ... well, about 14 other things.
