A term as 'reasonable' is very much in the eye of the beholder and I think we should be very careful in spinning the discussion in any direction that would encourage legislation. Reasonable, in this example would for you mean something like 'not more than half than what I'm paying for transit' whereas 3320 might think that 'twice the price of your transit' would be entirely reasonable because they're delivering such a quality experience. This is a commercial issue and if you think a legislative body might help you here, well, I respectfully disagree. Back to the subject at hand: I think any form of "$national Internet" to protect anyone from "evil" foreign entities is exactly what Neelie Kroes meant with being naïve about online spying in her speech earlier this week: http://commentneelie.eu/speech.php?sp=SPEECH%2F13%2F903 Best Remco van Mook Director of Interconnection, EMEA EQUINIX | 80 Cheapside, London, EC2V 6EE, United Kingdom E remco at equinix.com | T +31-6-11356365 HOW ARE WE DOING? <http://www.customersat3.com/csc/equinix> Please click here to Tell Equinix - We're Listening Equinix.co.uk <http://www.equinix.co.uk/> | Twitter <https://twitter.com/equinix> | LinkedIn <http://www.linkedin.com/company/equinix> | Facebook <http://www.facebook.com/Equinix> | YouTube <http://www.youtube.com/user/equinixvideos> This email is from Equinix Europe Limited or one of its associated/subsidiary companies.
