I'm not sure what you guys pay for transit, over east but certainly over here (Perth) having a gigabit connection to WAIX for the price we pay.. transit can't touch it. Given nearly all our eyeballs peer, it's only Optus/Telstra we need to buy transit for domestically. Seeing some of the pricing that PIPE charge however, it starts to become a very different ball game.
I get the impression PIPE don't care so much about their IX business as they used to (I keep seeing frequent issues on the list) and given who their parent company is-- makes me a little nervous. :)
