Could we stop this, please?
Actually, I enjoyed the recent humor!
Either Netrail's NAP will be useful or it won't be.
It'll be useful as a local exchange if local providers go.
It'll be useful as a place to sell transit of transit providers go.
But as to the rest of the thread, yes, it's pretty well exhausted.
Except, I hope that the locals will join together and make this MIX/NAP
work, or if it is overpriced or otherwise problematic, join together to
make _something_ work....
It'll be useful as a place to offload huge chunks of Internet traffic
between larger providers only if they go, which they don't seem to
be interested in yet.
Jointly buy _transit_ service in a bigger pipe, and specify that you
will only buy it at the NAP
