It depends on what you mean by "serious".  As I understand it, it's not
targeted at the big end of town -- there's no way you wouldn't be going
direct to the big tier 1s yourself if you needed multiple 10GE pipes, for a
wide variety of reasons.  Instead, it's intended as a "leg up" for the
smaller players to get into the marketplace *without* needing to make a huge
commitment to the big tier 1s and manage far more moving parts than would
otherwise be the case.
