Faster 'Net growth rate raises fears about routers

What about CAIS Hotel/Apartment/DSL?  They're about due to be de-listed
from NASDAQ and it doesn't look like KKR is planning to throw more money
at them...

I think they use COVAD, though, so at least the switch will be a (little)
less hectic one.

PSI could be next.  They are not DSL.  If I still had a PSInet connection
I would sure want it multihomed.

I also have no choice about the local telco.  They have been known to
drop individual T1s on me.  I sleep a lot better knowing I have backup.
