It's peering Jim, but not as we know it

And as reported from our own Mr Saarinen.

But it's not really peering (except it is), it only looks that way.

So, will this cause pressure on the other ISP's that are currently 'de-peered'?

(This development means only TelstraClear is left out).

I would say categorically Yes.

I believe TCL's position is still that it's better for content and Internet providers to pay for national transit through circuits into its network than sending traffic overseas in order to reach its customers.

Perhaps that strategy is successful and negates the need for TCL to peer; I don't know.
