Re: [Northeast] High pings / bad routing... tinet-gw.customer.alter.net is a peering point, indicating its tinet that is overloaded, not Verizon, as router can only push the traffic its network connection allows
So guppy is this one of those things where tinet (or whoever runs the switch or network on other side) is just not living up to their end of the peering agreement? If so, shouldn't Verizon be concerned if they receive enough complaints? I suppose it depends on how the agreement was made, but I would imagine all parties involved would want to have a say if the others are "slacking off."
Interesting stuff, this internet.
