"...the companies have agreed to the settlement-free exchange of traffic subject to specific payments if certain obligations are not met."

So it does look like Cogent bent somwhat...I'm guessing they agreed to pay some sort of "traffic imbalance fee"? Anyone know of any other peering arrangements that have similar terms? I'll admit, that's a new one for me...

It's not rocket science.

It's only as complex as one makes it out to be. (one can attempt to explain
away the complexities, but they apparently were able to *finalize* an
agreement in 3 weeks, perhaps the agreement happened in it's entirety in 3
weeks - no speculation on the agreement is required unless you have nothing
better to do)

Who are the next discontent couples?
