As for the "you're not allowed to prepend" thing, have you experimented to see what happens if you try? Unless they're giving you special pricing based on the idea that they're providing you with strictly backup transit, they shouldn't be doing the prepending (unless you've asked them to or used communities to tell them to).

See, this is why I like NANOG.  Many eyes see things one pair does not.

Hadn't even occurred to me that they were giving you special "backup transit only" pricing. In that case, makes perfect sense to force multiple prepends on their side.

Thanx Jon.
