Peering points

Or is the entire thing irrelevant, because everyone is moving to private
bilateral connections. And the important thing is how many providers
does someone peer, not how many exchange points they're connected to.
For the price of one Sprint-NAP connection, I can get several connections
to Canada. And we have a lot more customers in Canada than at the
Sprint-NAP. We already peer with everyone at the Sprint-NAP, or been
turned down by them elsewhere. So one more exchange point doesn't buy

The SprintNAP is a much less congested place than MAE-East (though most
providers also have less capacity out of it [besides Sprintlink, GSL,
ICM, etc...])...
