While trying to substantiate Mr. Glass' grievance with Netflix
regarding their lack of availability to peer, I happened upon this
tidbit from two months ago:
As for Mr. Woodcock's point regarding a lack of
https://www.netflix.com/openconnect/locations doesn't seem to do what
I'd expect, either, although I did finally find the link to
http://www.peeringdb.com/view.php?asn=2906 . To Mr. Glass' point, I'm
not seeing any way the listed PoPs could feasibly be less than 900
wire-miles from Laramie -- to be fair, cutting across "open land" is a
bad joke at best.
Life is rough in these "fly-over" states (in which I would include my
current state of residence); the closest IXes of which I'm aware are in
Denver and SLC (with only ~19 and 9 peers, respectively). Either of
those would be a hard sell for Netflix, no doubt about it.
I guess I'm just glad that my home ISP can justify anteing up for a
pipe to SIX, resources for hosting OpenConnect nodes, and, for that
matter, an ASN. Indeed, not everyone can.
