I've long been on record as saying I would sign any peering agreement with *RECIPROCAL* compensation. I can always arrange my traffic so they pay me, or at worst it is net zero. This is simple game theory. The greedier the compensation rate, the better off I am. Only an ILEC would be dumb enough to demand reciprocal compensation.
