Well, we would have a BGP router in another town. Then get a wave from a
transport provider from the other town to the town that equinix or the
peering exchange was located at. The cross connect would go from the
transport providers Z location to the port on the exchange. I have
confirmed that Equinix is willing to sell us a port on the exchange even if
we don't have a physical presence there.
