That's totally logical, but it's wrong for some cases. Here in Venezuela
there is much better bandwidth to the US than to anywhere else in South
America, so the "same continent" rule is not going to work for us. I
suspect the same is true for some other SA countries.

The same is also true for Asia. I would hope that the "same continent" rule has a tad bit more smarts in it.

Also, for the relatively few people on Internet2 it's always better than
Internet1, at least here. I mean Internet2 to anywhere is better than
Internet1 to the same city.
