The large ISPs and Peering

Yes please, and super size my cross connects...

I do not understand all the hubbub about the locations.  It would 
seem to me people would be more concerned about peering policy.  Isnt 
an open location where anyone can show up better than private peering 
circuits no one knows anything about.  Then the only argument against 
peering is policy not, "ummmm we dont do private peering circuits" or 
"oh that would take 1yr to provision. "  You show up, hand a cross 
connect to their router, see they have an open port... then just 
argue about their peering policy. That's about as good as it's ever 
going to get.  It they wont peer you can work out a transit 
arrangement which might be almost as good at that location.

Apparently Chris can supersize your optical connections with his 
fancy new gear.  Oh the fly upgrades from OC3 --> OC12 right Chris?
