1) Telehouse will not allow another peering point at 25 Broadway. Its like
"I will put my own Giga at MAE-EAST!

2) $400 a month for a port where a decent amount of traffic is traded and
where the
switch is well maintained is not rediculous...Telehouse is not a
501(c)3...they are
in this to make money...

3) Unless you can get some big names to peer openly, no one would be
willing to pay...
So how will you fund a switch and other costs?

I think Telehouse is making a buck, but isn't that what we are all here for?
