Peering Policy

Blackfoot has an open peering policy and evaluates all potential peers on a case-by-case basis.

  • Under no circumstances will Blackfoot Telecommunications Group peer with an existing transit customer.
  • Peers are expected to filter their clients to reject unauthorized BGP announcements.
  • Peers are expected to aggregate routes as much as possible. Blackfoot will not accept any announcement longer than /24.
  • Peers must not utilize any form of default route or gateway of last resort that is directed at Blackfoot.
  • If possible, Blackfoot prefers to implement MD5 authentication on BGP peering sessions.
  • Blackfoot reserves the right to suspend peering for an indefinite period of time should any abuse originate from a peer. This includes, but is not limited to: any form of DoS attack, unsolicited bulk email sources (Spam), default route directed at Blackfoot.
