[not exactly fitting the NA of NANOG, but I’m guessing there is an 
interest in North-and-South connectivity in general, so will continue 
the conversation]

You didn’t specify exactly how you’d like to get access to the 
eyeballs, so I’ll throw our 2 pesos in here: We have deployed a number 
of recursive resolvers in EdgeUno (AS7195) datacenters in LATAM 
including Bogotá and have been very pleased with the results reaching 
local eyeball networks. They have IP transit, co-location, and other 
offerings so perhaps there is a match there.

We are also deployed in IX locations in LATAM with other 
sponsorship/partnerships, but there are always edge cases that for 
whatever political/economic/telcomindedness reasons are better covered 
by transit arrangements. For the nations in which we are deployed with 
them, EdgeUno has solved most of those issues for us.

Tests are possible via their LG:
