Hmm Could Be

It may because instead of having several peering points to worry about you just have a couple which makes it much easier to track down and fix network wide problems. Also Level3 is a good backbone provider. Level3 is also the primary backbone provider for the XBox Live network and all the beta testers say the latency is next to non-existent.

Will new peering agreement result in savings.

Will Cox pass along those savings to its customers? Will recent price increases be rolled back?
