So more routers & more wan links are required by those providers, no?
I didn't say it's easy to do, but it's not impossible either.

Load-balance external peering, and either load-balance wan links or pull
the wan links to different locations.

MCI said they plan on increasing dramatically the # of pipes they have
to the public exchange points...
