It's not just RBOCs.  Approximately five years back I approached a 
cableco about peering.  They wanted to charge more for peering than what 
they did for transit.  Justification?  "It's priority access to our 
customers."

Note that it was NOT due to transit costs.  They still wanted the higher 
fee if one ran a private line directly to their POP.

This was for a mostly-content network.  So much for content/eyeball 
synergy.
