Good point Jeff. Sprint did get SOME inter regional connectivity money.  
For that they supposedly had to connect to ALL the NAPs (besides their 
own).  they were supposed to make the connections a year ago.  They were 
what 6 to 9 months late in connecting to Pac bell nap?

So if they were supposed to use the services of the routing arbiter and 
appear to have renigged on this, what can anyone do?? Are they determined 
to make it painfully obvious for all to see that there are no enforcement 
teeth left at the NSF?

Of course sprint is running a nap too.  i understand that their position 
is that the NAP is full.  They have a BUNCH of people trying to get into 
the NAP who are complaining to me that they get no answqers from sprint 
as to when that will be possible.
