Re: Peering Agreements

Peering agreements for a public peering arrangement are a waste of legal time.

When there is a cost associated with termination of a circuit then it makes more sense.

Most peering agreements have the termination without cause clause regardless.

I have a question on public peering agreements. I have seen some providers
using them while others are not. What is the general opinion on peering
agreements? Are most peering agreements used mainly for private peering?
Also, what are the pros and cons and what kind of protection should I
expect from such an agreement?

Thank you in advance,
