It's not possible to operate an IP network in Australia without paying  
the "GoF" tax and this effective "cartel" the ACCC created all those  
years ago for domestic peering I think is something the ACCC/ 
Government will have to look at fairly soon.  Otherwise it's going to  
constrain the growth of content delivery in Australia as the Domestic  
IP price becomes the "floor" price providers have to ensure they sell  
above so they don't get arbitraged.

Reach/Singtel/TNZI all quite happily peer with networks of our size  
offshore (ie.  if Internode was US based, then peering on the West  
Coast of the USA with all three would be fairly assured).
