Interesting thought. This may be true for some smaller countries, but believe me, it's MORE expensive to get a line from "somewhere in Germany" to one of the major IXes than to get upstream from a number of big ISPs at wherever you are. (The ratio changes if you reach a given size, but for small bandwidths, say "below 20 Mbit/s.", going to an IX is just not financially attractive) Gert Doering -- NetMaster -- Total number of prefixes smaller than registry allocations: 71007 (66629) SpaceNet AG Mail: netmaster at Space.Net Joseph-Dollinger-Bogen 14 Tel : +49-89-32356-0 D- 80807 Muenchen Fax : +49-89-32356-234
