I too am very interested in this topic. I'm in the process of putting a
small service provider network
together. Starting with three points of presence (Los Angeles, Kansas
City, <undetermined east coast location>).

I'm in the process of securing an AS, IP space etc. Already have all the
necessary networking gear. Working on getting
it configured and deployed.

I'm a data center guy coming into the WAN world. Learning as I go.
