 :| 	As I understand, KIX is mostly domestic Korea.

Yes.


 :| 	Japan has NSPIX3 and JPIX.  There is enough

Umm,,, To be correct, Nationwide IXes in Japan are NSPIXP2,
NSPIXP3, JPIX.  NSPIXP3 is located in Osaka.

Yes, M.root-servers.net is on NSPIXP2 and donated transit
through NSPIXP2 by some ISPs.  It may be called int'l
capacity. :-)



 :| 	And based on what I have been told, both HKIX and 
 :| 	STIX can be called international.  There is a 
 :| 	common error in assuming international = US domestic.
 :| 
 :| 	This is false.
 :| 
Thanks for pointing out.  "international" means just the 
multi-nationality of participant ISPs, right?


 :| 	Both STIX & HKIX have interconnections to ISPs in
 :| 	many other nations but not quite the connectivity back
 :| 	to the US.
 :| 
I see.
