Or "single-home" to a tier-2 -- or tier-1.5, or whatever you want to call it
in marketing newspeak -- that provides multihoming of their own networks,
and get a netblock from their space.

Often, that can be more cost effective (even these depeering situations
notwithstanding) than single-homing to a tier-1.
