 From a cost, operational, and routing perspective, the same would be  
true if you got a CT link in Los Angeles or San Francisco.

Since CT and CNC control all routes between China and everywhere else  
in the world-- including HK -- and the outsideCN-to-insideCN segment  
is going to be the most expensive and complicated element of any path  
between China and anywhere else, the choice of interconnect location  
with your preferred China-side service provider provider is largely  
going to be a matter of personal taste/local convenience.

Don't get me wrong, I like Hong Kong too -- just trying to make sure  
that everyone understands the situation clearly...
