    Peering question

    Suppoer 5 ISPs
    Small ISPs S1 and S2
    Tier 1 ISPs T1 and T2 that peers with everyone (you, S1, S2, T1, and T2)

    If you peer with T1, does that mean you get access to everyone, since T1 peers with everyone?

    What's the difference between transit and peering then?

    When you peer with a provider you get access to only their network, and not people they peer with.

    When you buy transit from a provider you get access to all the networks they connect to.

    So if you peer with network X, you couldn't get to network Y via that peering link.
