it's also not entirely obvious what the point of having local IXes
that serve these kinds of collections of people.
how much inter-ASN traffic is there generally for a city of 100k
people, even if they all have 1Gb/s connections? are they all
torrenting, accessing local business web pages that are hosted
locally, streaming video from local streaming caches? if a local IX
is a good place for a llnw, akamai, ggc, netflix cache node, i can see
it, but that's about it.
