Sorry about that.  Yes, of course, the 7010 is the same size as the 7505.
Must have had cognitive dissonance.  But yes, *when racks are available*,
it's generally whole-rack-rental from MFS at Gallows.

The other approach is to extend MAE-East to you in the NOVA area by buying
a package which includes a dedicated or shared FDDI port, two Netedges, and
a T3 in between the Netedges.  My guess is that it's 50-50 or maybe 60-40 
in favor of the Netedge approach, but collocating is definitely a more stable
way to connect.
