AGIS is going on the auction block.  NextLink paid over a billion dollars
for a provider with essentially full peering with the major backbones, now
you too can buy peering agreements from a one-time "tier 1" provider.
According to InteractiveWeek the high bid is only US$15 million.,4164,2552561,00.html

Then again, maybe AGIS's anti-peering policies of a few years ago make
them a less attractive purchase.
