My understanding of it is that people who want to be at the datacenter just for inter-customer communication can do so and be charged less then those who want to purchase full transit. In practice I don't know how many people actually do this (which limits its usefulness greatly). I'd love for level3-southfield(detroit) to turn into a place where local michigan people all drop a circuit into and keep traffic out of chicago. -- Bill Fumerola - Network Architect, BOFH / Chimes, Inc.
