- John Borland, Net Blackout marks Webs’ Achilles Heel, CNET (June 6, 2001) ("the squabble illustrates just how fragile the Internet's series of connected, largely unregulated private networks can be. The Net has built its strength in part on this decentralized, unregulated environment, but the ISPs' fight underscores that very little can prevent future blackouts like this from happening.")

- Colin C Haley, 'Peering' Into AOL-MSN Outgage, Internet News (Sept. 5, 2003) (“Two years ago, Cable & Wireless dropped its peering agreement with struggling backbone provider PSINet. The cancellation left C&W users unable to access IP addresses on the PSINet network and vice versa. A short time later, the two companies struck a deal to restore service, but the incident exposed the downside of peering agreements -- the fact that customers depend on good relations between rival network operators.”).

- CABLE & WIRELESS STATEMENT
As part of the review of our current peering arrangements, last Saturday (June 2nd), Cable & Wireless disconnected PSINet's peering connections as they no longer meet our publicly stated peering requirements (www.cw.com/us/peering). Over the last few days, discussions have continued between Cable & Wireless and PSINet to find a resolution to this issue for the benefit of all parties. On June 5 PSINet agreed, through a letter of intent, to meet Cable & Wireless' peering policy. PSINet has come forward with new information that may demonstrate PSINet meets Cable & Wireless' peering policy. As an expression of good faith, Cable & Wireless has reestablished the peering connections with PSINet for a period of 60 days while the parties consider PSINet's new information and, if applicable, negotiate in good faith a new peering agreement.
