Only a marketing person could place so much ambiguity into such a simple statement.

No, there will be no additional cost over your TransWEB connection.  If you have the TransWEB product, you will have access to TransCity.

It is a standard ISP practice now to have some form of "free" area.  Of course, we are all talking "free" in terms of usage, there is still a cost to gain entry.

>(I think webone at least has peering as well)

Yes, WebOne were quite early to offer free peering between their TransACT customers.
