Also the closest, and most massive, Internet direct exchange takes place in
a parking garage in Tyson's Corner, VA, just outside of D.C.. I'm sure it's
changed since the last time I was there and worked in the funky comm
room/data center located in an unassuming parking garage but all major
carriers join their massive pipes just outside of D.C. hence in the
"shortest biggest open pipe first" routing scenario D.C. is very close in
terms of bandwidth and real throughput between peering ISPs.
