I wonder if there is room for a Digital Markets Act style intervention on data centre XC pricing, 150 EUR/m for a static cable is hardly proportional.

@benjojo or possibly even just normal competition regulations. There’s been a lot of consolidation allowed through mergers and acquisitions which has given a handful of very large companies significant market power and generally they’re the ones charging ludicrous cross connects fees.
I’d like to see regulators like the UK’s CMA and whatever the EU equivalent is take a look at the biggest players in the datacentre market by square foot and/or megawatts. Maybe network density too?
