Large customer who have a connection into say MCI and UUNet will just get a connection into Worldcom and some other backbone provider. So yes I think it will be a loss of revenue, but I think the customers will move the other connection. > BTW, Gridnet is old Worldcom network, and is never merged with UUNET.
