So the reps/SEs/Techs that I have spoken with are saying they are going to
keep them separate. In my case I am tw customer and was worried about their
network when L3 took them over. I was even more worried when Centurylink
then took over L3 that I was going to lose one of the networks. However I
gotten assurances from everyone there that they are going to maintain all 3
networks as separate for the foreseeable future.

Does anyone know what the plans or even watercooler chat is concerning
Centurylink (AS209) and Level3 (AS3356) integration, direct peering, or
continuing separation?

We are looking at a IP Transit deal involving one or both networks and
while I'd love to have transit routes from both, I don't want to design to
be shot in the foot later on either if they are talking about soon-to-be
integrated or something.
