I think that it would be cool to have something similar to ISPMap.co.nz but with a whole lot more of extensive information (and more recent )
Things like who connects at the APE,WIX and how connections are routed around NZ..
Quote TUANZ's reported.
It looks like some of the infomation is being opened up a bit, will see what tomorrow brings.

The open broadband map isounds like it's going to be an intersting project is seeing what new networks are going in or in already.
hellonearthisman: topology? do you mean a map like google?
hellonearthisman: Your negative, can you see the creative vision at to what the broadband map is about and what they are trying todo with the map?
hellonearthisman: Isn't it the point for these two to overlay on each other? Topology and topography. And it asked for "something similar"
chrisjunkie: I dont see why it is a bad idea? Just something that shows possibly how (for example) trademe is connected to each ISP either through peering or the Global Gateway. Not hard to find out using a traceroute.
chrisjunkie: Also a cool thing would be which ISP's peer at the APE and WIX. Just an inhanced version of ISPMap and user-editable.
