It's just that when money is changing hands, folk tend to
find (passive) x-connects within the data centre to be far
more reliable (even though they are not infallible) than
passing traffic across another (active) system being run by
someone else in the same physical facility.
Plus, some service providers will drastically reduce or
eliminate SLA's (for whatever they may be worth) if there is
another active system in between you and their service.
