Comcast Peering in Miami?

Please take the below in the spirit of "huge HE fan who appreciates very much the excellent free service he's getting" and not as whining from a freeloader...  ;D

Comcast's peering in Miami seems to be pretty lousy in general (seems invariably anything in-state I traceroute to goes via Atlanta or VA or Dallas, etc), and I see there are several other topics on Comcast peering in other locations, so I get the sense this will not happen anytime soon. But, count me as another person wishing this could happen. Or maybe peering with GBLX at Terramark would help, if you don't now?

(that's actually improved from earlier today...)

Ashburn performs significantly better for me (45ms vs 70ms avg RTT), and even Toronto(!) is slightly better than Miami for me. Atlanta (if you had a tunnel server there... I just simulated by guessing at hostnames and trying 10gigabitethernet1-1.core1.atl1.he.net) still ends up going via Ashburn anyway and is slower, so I guess Ashburn is my best bet for the foreseeable future.
