Level 3 - "legacy" Wiltel/Looking Glass bandwidth

We were a former Wiltel customer that was bought out by Level 3.  Wiltel 
service had been great, and then as soon as level 3 took over, things 
went downhill.  We had GigE service, and wanted another line, but Level 
3 said they didn't want to sell any more ports on Wiltel gear.  We also 
had serious problems even when we tried to disconnect.  They didn't have 
access to any of the Wiltel records, so they couldn't even tell who had 
ordered what.  Big mess overall.  I'm not going to be working with Level 
3 anymore if I can avoid it, and I definitely wouldn't get in on legacy 
Wiltel stuff under Level 3.
