PSI statement on C&W peering issue

  • From: Sean Donelan

PSI statement from their website

      Cable & Wireless chose to terminate connectivity with       
      PSINet on 2June01.  Over 90% of the traffic that used to be 
      routed through C&W is now being routed via other means      
      through our robust global free peering infrastructure.  The 
      remaining 10% or so represents C&W customers that have been 
      deliberately cut off from PSINet by C&W.  While PSINet is   
      ready and willing to re-establish connectivity with C&W at  
      any time, it is up to C&W to choose to reverse their        
      previous decision.  In the meantime, PSINet can offer       
     services directly to those C&W customers that are affected.

Does the 10% number mean C&W's network reach has shrunk, or that a
growing number of networks are multihomed?
