Is this really still true?
In Japan there are 4 IXes I'm aware of (JPIX and NSPIXP-2 being the
largest). In Hong Kong, HKIX is (last I heard) pretty popular. In Korea,
I'm told there are quite a few Ixes. There is some intra-Asia meshing going
on (including both carriers as well as efforts like ABONE). Is it still the
case that to get from (say) Korea to Japan, the best path is through the US?
