Peering Failing Already

We have seen Cogent have peering disputes with Level3 and Telia. There are scuffles regularly, usually around the size of the peering point.

With the mergers of MCI+VZ and BST+AT&T+SBC in 2005, conditions were made about maintaining the status quo on all peering connections. However, it was a three year term -- and unlike most telco contracts, this one doesn't auto-renew. Already AT&T is re-negging on its peering inter-connection with, not some small guy, but with Sprint. Read it here.
