Re: 60 Hudson peering

  • From: Jeffrey Meltzer

$750 is not unreasonable for 2 strand dark fiber in 60 Hudson.  And if you
work hard, you can get this down to $500.  Check 111 8th Ave, it costs well
into the $3,000/mo range generally.

In addition, we're already working on (in progress) cat5 xcon's between TelX and
suite 1505 in 60 Hudson.  However, how much do you think that would cost?
Not all that much less, figure in the $300/mo range.

Furthermore, anyone peering inside of TelX is probably doing it privately
and because of the cost of xcon's there, probably would keep doing it

BTW, if anyone is interested in speaking about MetroIX, contact myself or
Avi off-list.  It's been moving along slowly as people re-evaluate peering
arrangements, companies that we talk to disappear, etc ;)  People like to
see things done instantly in this market, but that's not always the best way
to get things done right...
