[AB] Telus and Shaw peering in Edmonton improved

So since forever Shaw and Telus peering in Edmonton has pretty much sucked. Usually traffic needed to make a visit to Vancouver before you would cross the chasm between these two networks.

Well sometime in recent history it looks like these two rivals have gotten together to provide a little bit of peering in the Edmonton area. I'm seeing as low as 4 hops now going from a Telus connection to a Shaw user in the City.

From Shaw to Telus:

3 tl9ni.ed.shawcable.net (64.59.184.157) 24.609 ms 16.978 ms 16.085 ms
4 rc3ar-tge0-8-4-0.ed.shawcable.net (66.163.70.38) 15.895 ms 10.202 ms 11.595 ms
5 96.1.252.93 (96.1.252.93) 8.747 ms 11.533 ms 20.121 ms
6 EDTNABXMGR01.bb.telus.com (154.11.10.141) 27.607 ms 10.747 ms 14.464 ms

From Telus to Shaw:

2 * * *
3 dx2we-g3.ed.shawcable.net (64.59.185.121) 9.765 ms 15.765 ms 15.993 ms
4 dx2we-g1.ed.shawcable.net (64.59.184.154) 11.019 ms 26.477 ms 10.151 ms

Looks like a Gigabit peering connection.
10-12ms ping times from Shaw cable to a Telus fibre in the city.

What makes you think it's a gigabit?

Good observation, probably right, but definately not gigabit haha probably multiple fibre optic links. The Telus connection is also likely ADSL2+ or VDSL2 via copper phone line, not fibre.

I wonder if the Shaw fire in Calgary had anything to do with this.

I would interpret this as "Ten Gig Ethernet".

I assume this is at least Gig, as per "-g3" and "-g1".

There's really no point peering at anything less than gig.

Yes, but that's the interface on Shaw's network, not the peering interface.

I just checked, its a 10gige interface. It wouldn't make sense to deploy anything less.
