It means that if there is one provider that connects to A and B,
then no-one else in A or B needs to buy transit between A & B as
that one provider will have to provide it. That will not fly.
It means that some small provider only in area A does not need to
buy transit at all.
I, as a large ISP, will only give transit if at least one end pays
me. Who is going to pay me?
