Small CLECs are usually willing to negotiate more.  Large IXCs and ILECs
are usually willing to negotiate less.  A large collocation operator like
Equinix may be able to get concessions that someone with a 10 rack data
center can not get from the IXCs, CLECs or ILECs.

My experience is different, but my experience is large scale data and
network buildout so I understand. The poster sounds like they are talking
something a little smaller than I had in mind hence 'specifics', but
not knowing anything, I wouldn't ask for anything less than $700 to start.

I did notice he got something in a later post. Bravo. You should all try
the same whenever and provider tries to install a rack in your space. You
may be surprised.
