I have to go to Florida to get to Ferndale

From Bellingham, there is there really no peering point in Qwest’s backbone to Comcast? It seems preposterous that I takes me 102ms to ping 11 miles. I wish I could brag about biking that fast. But at least I do not have to bike to Florida to get to Ferndale:
