Everyone who peer(s|ed) with AS3967 is supposed to purchase transit from AS3561. ;-) First 174, now 3967. Yes, they're different scenarios, but it seems that AS3561 has strong intentions to depeer. Sure, they can do as they please... but in whose best interest is it? As networks continue to amalgamate and assimilate, it'll be interesting to see what happens to carrier-neutral colo. Will the remaining "big players" pull out, telling customers "you come to us"? Some consolidation is inevitable -- and good. But I wonder if, come 2005, the Internet backbone will resemble how it was in 1995. Will the members of the oligopoly lose interest in maintaining decent peering, simply saying "you could reach us fine if you bought transit from us"?
