Peer at local internet exchanges

You only seem to be peering in Singapore and relying wholly on transit in the other locations, peering locally has numerous benefits, why are you only doing so in Singapore?

If for some reason I am wrong, please correct me :)

    Hi, After the success of our peering at SGP we have been adding additional peering points in AMS as well as NYC. Thus far: We have 20 different internet providers and IX Peering points worldwide. We're publicly peered with about 500 different networks. Since this is part of our overall strategy going forward we'll be constantly looking for additional peering arrangements in all of our datacenter regions to improve connectivity. Thanks!
