Carrier Options in Bogota

This would be vanilla IP transit (BGP w\ our ASN and IP space). Our services are delivered to clients over the public internet. I just need decent connectivity to these end users without hopping to Miami to go 2 blocks down the street!

LATAM, and Bogota in general seems like a pretty fragmented market where some providers have good peering with some locals but not all. Edgeuno seems to be a general one size fits all but latency to Claro was somewhat high.

Is there a provider that's 'well peered' with all the locals? Hoping this formats correctly but here's the results of ping tests on various looking glasses to prefixes of the various locals.

> 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.

For the nations in which we are deployed with them, EdgeUno has solved most of those issues for us.
