I'm just wondering if there is any interest at all

such a beast for a while, but at the moment there's only a couple of
ISP-like entities (that I know of) who might possibly be interested.
I think with your connection to WIX, it is your customers who would
seek the peering experience, both locally and with Wellington peers.
WISE Net would be happy to house such a beast if it
could be shown that
there was sufficient interest, although I'm not sure we're exactly what
you might call neutral territory :)
I thought you had a switch or two there already, <grin>.
So really what I'm asking is, is there anyone else
out there? Do you
want to peer with us? With others? Have you got a network you want to
connect to others with in the Wairarapa at a central place?
I'm sure there are, and the response from Mike is confirmation of this.

Despite recent presentations that would characterise customers as
"eyeballs" or "little black squares," I think you will find that is
consumers, rather than operators who will respond to the opportunity
After all, wouldn't cellular operators prefer that we couldn't speak
to each other except via their metered services?
