Historically, there hasn't been much traction beyond regional peering
in Philadelphia.  Last I knew, 401 North Broad was the only building 
with a useful confluence of carriers.  According to, S&D 
still has a colo & switch there, as does 'cross connect solutions'.  
The S&D site confirms the population
( and that
the more enterprise-colo on Market street is still running as well.
For your I2/edu connbectivity, MAGPI has the bulk of their connectivity 
in 401 North Board.
