Michigan Network Access Points
West Michigan Peering Project
ISPs are invited to join the West Michigan Peering Project
There is a significant amount of traffic on the Internet that is regional in nature.
By peering at a local network access point centered in Grand Rapids, ISPs can reduce their traffic on backbone connections.
Peering costs $200 per T1 per month and implies trading traffic with any and all members of the West Michigan Peering Project.
$200 covers the cost of a local T1 loop, assuming you can meet at one of the following DS3 cross-connection points:
