That's just for transport to the Equinix facility, correct?  Because if 
I recall correctly HE.net has fiber going into Equinix Chicago (or if 
not there, another facility) and HE.net does $2/Mbps IPv6/IPv4/BGP on 
GigE commits.

As for physical location, I know we looked pretty hard at our own 
physical location, but it almost sounds smarter from an infrastructure 
perspective to just suck it up and take the higher $/sq.ft. rates to get:

   1. A room in an established facility with established NCPI, or
   2. A cage in an established server room in said established facility
      with said established NCPI

I see that Level3 laid fiber to the CoSentry/DTN offices at 9110 W. 
Dodge, but do they also light up the Bellevue location or is that just a 
Pinpoint backhaul?
