Massive Price Increase for X-conns at Telehouse Chelsea, NYC

If itâ??s in an interduct by itself, how much would the square footage per
month occupied by the average cross connect be worth?

Iâ??m not saying I think $300 MRC is legitimate by any means, but, if
youâ??re going to talk about the ongoing costs, the space in the cable
ladder and/or fiber tray(s) also has to be accounted for.
