Yep, with 111 8th close behind.

Most of the African ISPs connect into 118th and the LINX.

All the ISPs I've talked to in Egypt claim that the Cairo IX was a failed
experiment and that they haven't heard anything about it in the last two
years.  Which roughly corresponds with the last time I heard anyone
talking about it in the present tense.  But I'll defer to Joe if he has
other information.

The existing Cairo IX is/was not a success for many reasons.

Just FYI - There is a new IX starting up in Cairo (see http://www.gpx.ie).
GPX is trying to be available for the growth in the region.  I've been
involved in their technical specifications so I can attest to the high level
of redundancy, load capabilities and architecture.
