Hi All,

I realise that in Australia peering is approached quite differently to 
the rest of the world in that all of the major peering points here are 
multilateral, so people don't care greatly about having to build the 
relationships to peer - they just connect to one of the peering points 
and that's it usually.


There exists a database which contains a lot of peering information from

around the world called "PeeringDB" 

It'd be really good for everyone who runs a network in Australia (and 
elsewhere) to fill in their information in this database in the most 
complete way possible.


When a lot of people look around the AsiaPac region for places to put 
their infrastructure for content delivery (most importantly) it's 
important that they see, at least at first glance, a vibrant peering 
community here who will be interested in peering (even though it's 
multilateral) with them to acquire content.

Currently PIPE Sydney only lists 7 companies peering - only 3 being 
Australian!   There should be 68 entries there.
WAIX only lists 11 - where there should be 70 odd!

So, please, help us all by filling in your entry because it helps the 
big content delivery companies become more aware of how important 
peering points are here and help get the content owners interested in 
delivering content here.
