captive audiences (or those which view themselves as captive) are so much
fun... :(
I imagine that 'away from Telaviv' in the 20ms arena is .... actually
pretty hard to find, right?
If you wanted to offer 'local' content locally (and offer it quickly/fastly
(ha!)) it's probably pretty hard in that part of the world, right? Whether
it actually 'costs' that much to pull a x-connect and maintain that
x-connect is probably not as important as 'gosh it's really hard to be
'close' to  <isreali city>' right? which is what they are capitalizing on

Hank, how far away is the next closest large network metro ? Riyad? Rome?
Sofia?... I mean, it's all 'far' from 'isreal' (or really any part of the
world)  to the next decent network POP :(
