From my point of view:
- I'll bet it's not the same price
- We'd still need to invest as it wouldn't GUARANTEE that all the
peering routes we see are clean
- So we'd need to pay more for transit, get rid of our peering and
- We'd need to be able to have our legal responsibility back-to-backed
with the upstream.
So, at least from an economic point of view, it'd still be a poor result.
