I'd like to have at least one or two more places to tap into the IXP from so that I can use it as leverage when I negotiate space and power with all of you. Especially for PNIs which is on the horizon.
When an IXP grows, it make sense to peel off traffic vs. leave it all on the exchange. A variety of reasons including cost. In fact, if a fee were to be implemented for ports you'd probably see some of that happen with more frequency than you do now. But when I do that, I want choices and I want to still be able to connect. Cake. Ice Cream. Save Money.
