Squid is damn cool to be honest. :-)
I've got proxy peering working at VPAC between ourselves and two other
GrangeNet connected institutions, anything that they have in their cache that
one of our users requests comes from them instead of the real site. This is
free as GrangeNet doesn't charge for intra-Grangenet traffic (it's covered in
the annual subscription).
Setting up proxy peering on Melbourne Wireless shouldn't be any different,
especially if you use cache digests rather than ICP to distribute what each
cache has every hour rather than querying every time a request is made.
