Subject: Article on Internet Peering


        You may find interesting an article I wrote entitled "Without Public Peer:
The Potential Regulatory and Universal Service Consequences of  Internet
Balkanization."  It appears in the current edition of the Virginia Journal
of Law and Technology

        I examine the development of private peering with an eye toward assessing
whether smaller ISPs, especially ones in rural areas, will face reduced and
more expensive access opportunities.  I note the maturation of the Internet
and the use of alternatives to Sender Keep All settlements has established
a more hierarchical network of networks operating much like today's
telecommunications network.  If this has occurred and if universal access
to the Internet becomes a public policy mission, then the goal may have
become more challenging and more expensive.  This dilemma arises at the
same time as we face challenges on how to fund a more expansive universal
telecommunications mission.
