But the facility Chris referenced is half-full -- at best.  Not only is
space plentiful, but cooling and electrical have plenty of reserve.  The
price still would be reasonable at a higher rate.

The funny thing is, the facility is in a market so small that I doubt
the DC's aggregated revenues meets L3's typical _per-customer_ minimum
volume requirements. ;-)  Perhaps L3 wanted the telco side of Telcove,
and just plans to scuttle the IP stuff -- which has some pretty stupid
"backhaul everything to ATL even though DFW is far closer" routing
topology, anyhow. *shrug*

Life goes on.
