I would agree here cross connects.  We pay 15x more in cross connects per
month then we do in just the space/power.  We actually pulled out of a
colo once our contract came to terms with one of the large colo providers
because of the extortion cross connect fees.  It's an issue when a cross
connect within the same room cost more then the loop going 100 miles away.
 I sometimes question if the colo providers even understand our industry.
Sadly enough it was cheaper to move all that colo into an AT&T CO/Tandem
then to stay put in the colo space.  Just my 2 cents.

Here's the list pricing we received about a year ago for 60 Hudson/111 8th
in NYC: (24 month contract)
Single cab: $800/mo + $1000 setup
20A @ 208V: $605/mo + $500 setup
XC - Coax: $225/mo + $500 setup
XC - Fiber: $325/mo + $500 setup
XC - POTS: $25/mo + $100 setup
XC - T1/E1: $225/mo + $500 setup
PAIX 1gig: $1000/mo + $2000 setup
PAIX 10gig: $2500/mo + $4000 setup

Obviously, much negotiation was in order.

As others have said, the cab, and even power, is somewhat reasonable. But
the cross connects kill the whole thing.
