That would be mister microsoft... then... talking through his ********
Seemingly the fall out from that blunder was that the IDA and INEX got talking,
and Mr Microsoft was enlightened as to the existance of INEX. He didn't do
any research before he opened his mouth..
There's nothing wrong with peering in Ireland, nothing that is except that
some of the global telco's (UUnet) won't peer there because it means that
they can't sell services to the large ISPs .. (you can't charge for something
that you are giving away for free)
 This may have changed since I last looked into it.
 Unless you are Esat with a no-limits product :)
