Hello all,

I located our new midwest datacenter site, but I'm going to need 
connectivity to Chicago. At which other middle of the country places 
should we connect? We will obviously connect back to our network in 
New York and Los Angeles, but I'm not familiar with other carrier 
hotels or IXs in the middle of the US. What is in Dallas? Does anyone 
have any strong feelings about Telx in 
<http://www.telx.com/facilities.php?section=ChicagoIL350ECermakRoad>Chicago, 
IL @ 350 E. Cermak Road or 
<http://www.telx.com/facilities.php?section=ChicagoIL600_780SFederalSt>600 
S. Federal Street? Are those the best places in the midwest? Any 
other suggestions? I am asking here because I am looking for a 
carrier and ISP perspective. I am going to colocate core and edge 
routers and I need connectivity to a large pool of carriers and no 
MRC on cross connections. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
