We here at ORI.NET have found several advantages to being a FD-IX exchange member. Our broadband subscribers represent tens of thousands of content consumers, and having access to that content without leaving the data center saves money on transit costs, as well as providing a lower latency and optimal path for the best customer experience. Since we host approximately 1000 websites and 10,000 email users, we also see quite a bit of traffic originating from FD-IX to access our network content as well. Keeping traffic local just makes sense for ORI from cost, performance, and redundancy perspective. The benefits keep growing as each new member joins the exchange.
