This is true too. We only provide layer 2 connectivity. ISPs on NZIX don't
have to follow some certain routing protocol. It should depend on their
But it should be said that Kawaihiko had multiple service providers and NZIX
was the place where most of domestic traffic got exchanged. It's why Waikato
