When the transact guy spoke at clug a couple of months ago, he said that
they were providing facility for the different transact isps to talk to
each other internally, but none of them were particularly interested in
setting it up.

(warning - rampant speculation ahead!)

If there was a large amount of transact isp <-> transact isp traffic, they
might be interested in routing it internally (so they could put off
upgrading their upstream link for a few months as some of the traffic went
elsewhere instead), but as things stand, it would just reduce their profit
(from charging people for bandwidth) without reducing their costs
(associated in providing links to elsewhere) noticably.
