Heya Simon,

Work a deal with Stephanie at FiberNet and 111 8th, 60 Hudson, etc. are much easier to navigate from abroad.

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.
