Internet De-Peering

Level 3 communications broke a peering arrangement with Cogent Communications Group last week, which was caused by (1) unbalanced Internet traffic or (2) retaliation against Cogent's below cost pricing. If you need more information about peering concept, please refer to Peering and Settlement paper written by Dr. Weiss and me.

The PFF had this item related to network interconnection yesterday. On a similar note, BusinessWeek had this item (I posted this link in a comment to the thread on next gen DVDs as well). How does this relate to the subject of network interconnection?
