Hi James (And Ausnog),

Gavin was fairly correct in his comment “where you sit on the cost/control/reliability curve” about how much value you will achieve from peering away from the East coast.
IX Australia makes their graphs public: https://www.ix.asn.au/peering/
So you can see where the bulk of traffic exchange occurs.

So, IX Australia and our hardware partner Extreme networks are putting on a series of functions in July.
If you’re interested in learning more about the non-East-coast fabrics these would be a great opportunity to come and pick the brains of other peers or Joe himself; so I’d like to extend the invitation to all of Ausnog if you’d like to join us for a beverage in July everyone is welcome!

Hi Noggers,

We're an east coast ISP peering in QLD, NSW and VIC. We have no infrastructure in WA or SA. Is there any point in us peering in SA or WA and backhauling this traffic to our VIC point of presence?

From what I can see all the ISPs with a strong presence in SA/WA already peer in VIC and NSW so we'd just basically be shifting the backhaul burden to ourselves if we were to remotely peer in WA. Are there any major unique peers in WA that aren't peering VIC/NSW/QLD already?
