I had one provider once that wanted to charge me a surcharge simply for
the privilege of running BGP. The had "bgp charge" on their list of
things. Well, we were dual-homed to them and I asked how in the world
they expected to fail traffic over if we *didn't* run bgb. They should
be requiring I run bgp, not charging extra for it if they intend to meet
their own SLA. Static routing to a dead link is a surefire SLA killer.
The sales rep got a little red.
As for a full table, no, I have not paid extra for it.
