Well, perhaps that is actually something to think about in a little bit more depth. In particular, the infrastructure that's present, the reasons for chosing it, and the future path to me has a great deal to do with the long term viability of a location and service offered. > My point is -- it is important to whom do you peer at NAP, > not who is your "real estate" landlord. I think it is indeed important with whom you peer, but also where. In fact, none of that reduces the importance on how you peer, where you & your peers are, how they get from a to b, who owns the facilities (real estate, fiber, other telco facilities), where the facility is located, how do you find out that things are well and who you call when something goes wrong etc etc (because it invariably will, nothing's perfect). And there are probably many more questions one should ask. > Don't you think? Sorry, I disagree. I think there are other details which matter a great deal as well.
