I was actually getting traction until one ... for lack of a better term "party pooper"... put the kibosh on the whole thing and ripped all the wiring out before we had finished.
I've mentioned it to EQNX and PAIX numerous times that it would be a value-add at the right price point. They don't seem interested.
Most replies offlist seem to recommend just dealing with the hell that is the incumbent carrier ... or buying 1mbps-committed transit from someone willing to do it. The problem with that is the $300+ MRC that places like EQNX and PAIX will charge for the ethernet XC.
Some other replies offered the you-scratch-my-back-I-scratch-yours solution of throwing an XC to each other in facilities like the Westin or the MMR at 111 8th where XC fees aren't MRCs.
