MAE NY?

Last I checked (it's been a couple of months) only one customer was
connected to the 100mbit patch panel on the peering switch and everyone else
was at 10mb. And yes, it does get rather hot in there....though not as bad
as 60 Hudson in the summer.

which gives a clue as to traffic levels.

but it is nice that a bunch of overseas folk van be met there. but the
environment is just not spiffy enough that one would put a critical pop
there. but a ds3 over and a router in order to meet folk seems reasonable
and prudent.

And yes, it does get rather hot in there....though not as bad as 60 Hudson
in the summer.

60 hudson seems to vary widely depending on which floor and which room.
some folk's collos would even please a seattleite.

granted not much, but nice european stuff, especially with Demon, wisper,
insnet, nildram, etc.. being there.

If it's any indication, we've been quite happy with both telehouses
facilities and hands-on tech. 168% better than worldcom folks.
