yes, it's good to know, am not shocked that it seems to avg out at
56kbps symmetrical.  For a dozen ISPs, that is truly small. Take a
look at the 8 peers at UIXP for comparison:

that peering fabric.

This is the key thing, not only do we have cross border fiber, but we
have the rise of a regional carrier.  This was one of the goals of a
regional IXP project.  Would be nice to have more than one at some
point, but one has to start somewhere.
