RE: Peering, Large ISPs, and You

  • From: Joseph T. Klein

Having done time in the US Military and had both employment and consulting
in and with large organization, some of them in this industry, I would
tend to be in wholesale agreement with Vijay. Large organization don't
conspire well, not even within themselves. Heck, it's hard to get more
than seven people to agree on anything. I worked at one company where the
board of directors had a two month argument about office stationary design.

I do think it would lance a few boils if the nine locations where released
to the community.

Dan,

  this secret "cabal" of all controlling, all knowing large ISP's working
in concert to the detriment of the "small" ISP is bullshit. The processes
and politics are so bad that chances of a _single_ ISP's divisions making
a coherent plan are far more likely than developing a lighter than air
pig. Now apply that across 10 of these ISPs.
