Surely some /very basic/ BGP can fix this, that is, if they think that
their customers using their network is somehow a bad thing?
The point is that they feel they can increase revenue by stopping peering
and they need to engineer a reason to do so.
Claiming other ISPs are stealing bandwidth off them is a convenient excuse
they can use so the exercise doesn't appear to be a naked money grab.
There are plenty of people in T&T bright enough to adjust advertisements
and filters so they don't trunk more traffic from one end of the country
than they want to.
