Ya, we are working on this and will have the data available via www and 
ftp. I think the problem with most providers (sprint, mci, etc included) 
is they don't want that info available to customers. My sprintlink connection 
has been down countless times. It is not just sprint (sprint has one of 
the best networks) my mci link has been down aslmost as much. And if I 
looked at that info on a www page I would not pick them. We will have our 
connection up a a few NAP's soon so I will see, we may be down just as much.
