Alex I think if they remained NEUTRAL like their previous name it could
work as an interconnecting place such as BGP peering. we are here to move
packets. Now if they start to tax the packets or dig in and say hey that's
VoIP we are taxinig the calls then things would change.  They did change
their name so maybe they aren't so neutral like a data center BGP meeting
