Agreed. That can't be stressed enough. *ALL* providers break. Many of them
choose different days and times to do so, and multihoming to different
providers causes a huge increase in total reliability as a result.
Speaking of broken providers, AGIS just mailed me and said that
Sprint is "broken" today, and so they've decided to filter out Sprint
routes until it gets fixed. Anyone know the _real_ story?
