There are lots of providers that can do connectivity between Any2 and 
Equinix. It has been suggested privately that some Equinix MSAs may 
prevent this sort of thing. In fact, to prevent this sort of thing, I 
suggested providing x-connects from 1275 AND Equinix to another facility 
to prevent Borg'ing ops in the future.

I am not aware of Any2 pricing, but I'm sure the 6 members of CRG K 
Street's Any2 would be happy to join any new initiative (either a larger 
Any2 or something new).
