value of co-location

I'm also curious about the value of co-location.  Using a fast packet
service (Frame Relay, SMDS, or ATM) allows your on-site router to
communicate directly with a router of another ISP.  There's no need to
purchase another router to place at the co-location site.  Why incur the
additional cost?
