Perhaps the costs have changed and noone has told me, but the $2000/month
for MAE-HOUSTON includes a 10Mb/sec local loop if you are on the MFS network 
in Houston (more than 140 buildings, I believe). As far as I know, most of the
participants (and I note that NOL is not one of them) are not hooked to 
anything faster than a 10Mb/sec connection and none of them are co-locating
at the MAE just for the purpose of connecting to it.

You miss my point, I know of a fair number of local ISP's that would love to
connect at MAE-Houston for the interconnects alone if the costs were within
reason. The $2000/month I mentioned is your 10mb line to the nap, that
however doesn't get you connected, thats just your loop cost, and for a
small fry like me.. thats too damn much, way to damn much.
