This is done in Sweden, by the exchange point company Netnod, <http://www.netnod.se/>. They have an AS of their own, which is free to peer with, in which a number of crucial services are located, for instance: * Root DNS server * COM/NET/ORG DNS server * DNS for a number of ccTLDs including Sweden. * NTP masters directly synchronised to swedish standard time * RIPE whois mirror. Some of these services are present at several Netnod IXen, notably ccTLD and NTP. It works, and gives excellent service levels. -- Måns Nilsson Systems Specialist +46 70 681 7204 KTHNOC MN1334-RIPE We're sysadmins. To us, data is a protocol-overhead.
