I guess you could get that in writting from him and than sue him
when there is a problem, ie not getting 100%. I know of an FTP site that
could fill that up :)

Well, having a T3 is really no big deal, or having fiber. Lets
see, we run fiber in our office, so we fiber to the net.

The bad thing about AS's, Internic, etc. Everyone knows who your
customers are :(

*sigh* I guess this goes on everywhere.
I guess that the only way to be the 'winner' in this market is to
be truthfull to the customers. One of the ISPs in Utah has NO tech
support to turn on new customers at this time, and they have a T3 to
sprint, :( And one of our customers who is going to them, they cut our
price by 75% is about to be cut off. And they say the Law of the Harvest
is not true.
On another note, in routing in the internet, it talks about if
you are having more than a 2% packet loss, you need to get it fixed. Well
we are seeing over 20% at some places.. And the Internet is going well?
Also, the Utah REP, based on Dave Segiels Phoenix REP, will be up this
week for anyone in the Utah Area looking for a place to connect.
