What is something else :).

Is it more peering? Does it worth peering with IPLC?  Or should we
advocate more local peering and bring global cache locally?  I have got
positive comments in BD though regarding peering with IPLC (specially end
user experience) and also price perspective. What is the community thought
on this? BIG FAT vs Good quality? Thanks Simon for bringing this. :)
