>MAE-LA has never been very hot. Same with NYIIX.

NYIIX isn't big, but it's the only worth connecting to in NYC at the 
moment. Sure, there's PAIX-NY, but it's new and didn't have many customers 
last I checked.

I'm not convinced. Sure, everyone's in 111 8th, but it's a real pig to get 
around the building between carriers. If you're not careful, you end up 
buying 0-mile circuits off telcos to go between suites in the same 
building.
