Read section IV of their policy again:


                                       IV. Traffic Requirements

                                            A. Each peering
connection speed shall be at least 155 Mbps.

                                            B. The traffic volume
at each peering connection shall be at least 45
                                            Mbps.

                                            C. The aggregated
traffic ratio shall not exceed a ratio of 2 : 1

                                            D. Traffic volumes
shall be measured in either direction, inbound or
                                            outbound, whichever
is higher, on a weekly aggregated average
                                            basis over all the
points where the parties exchange traffic


Point C says 2:1, but D says they don't care in which direction
its in, it just has to be balanced.
