Partial transit was really trendy a few years ago in the UK, because
even as typical transit pricing was starting to hit £5-6/Mbit (AU$9),
it was possible to buy UK or even European peered routes for £1-3/Mbit.
Now it's possible to pay almost nothing for global transit here, so
it's less fashionable. Partial transit can make it hard to get
peering for people who sell partial ("Hey, I don't want you to sell my
routes for pennies.."), and buy partial ("Well, I already see you
through this peer.....")
