Not all exchange points are built with the idea of making money. Some
are gratis and some are cheap, with the purpose of improving
connectivity, not making money with the IX. In Paris, France, two IX
(FreeIX and Pouix, may be three with the Sfinx, which is not a
profit-maker) are explicitely built with that aim.
