At the bottom of a fairly unrelated story I came across:
Meanwhile, Telecom and TelstraClear have signed a peering agreement which
formalises arrangements under which the telcos move data traffic across
one another's networks.
Mr Goulter says the telcos' engineering teams have cooperated to allow
peering for some time, but the new commercial agreement is "good for the
future of the industry".
John Goulter is a Telecom Spokesman, I can't find anything about the deal
on either company's media release sites however.
