At the end of the day it’s a cost/benefit analysis, reading the OP’s message it’s clear that the IX or transit isn’t really the problem, but rather how much traffic traverses to the point of transit/IX. I think until we see some numbers both in terms of traffic and in terms of price to say Miami, Willemstad, etc. we can’t easily determine a good solution.
