These traceroutes raise an interesting question. By the look of things, I assume that Vodafone is peered with NZIX (or at least WIX). However Telstra (cable at least) connections are still going out overseas and back to get to somewhere like ftp,citylink.co.nz.
Are there any plans to consolidate the traffic so that the TCL traffic can be shunted across like Vodafone traffic seems to be already?
