And I sure hope the answer is no :) > > .. and will they force Exodus to de-peer with everyone They've already significantly reduced their peering in Australia, in two phases - first they closed down AUSIX (since they were closing down one of their IDCs which had it in there), then they stopped peering their US content with their Australian peers (and I'd expect they also stopped peering their Australian content with their US peers). It was all so good while it lasted... I'm still wondering about the other IDCs. 26 of 44 have been sold, and the brand name with them it would appear. Some of the others (at least the remaining 2 of the original 3 Australian ones - one of the Australian ones was shut down a while ago) are still operating under the Exodus name and aren't mentioned anywhere in the sale agreement. One of the two remaining Australian ones used to be very profitable before Exodus bought it, and I believe it remained profitable after they bought it. Although it has lost it's largest customer (and possibly the most prominent content provider in Australia) since the chapter 11. Reading more from http://www.exodus.net/special/, 14 of their IDCs (4 international, 10 domestic) have been closed. That still leaves 4 with their future in doubt (although it doesn't list the third Australian IDC as closed - so perhaps only 3 in doubt, the two remaining Australian ones and one other, somewhere?)
