Why do you need to renumber out of previous space if MCI doesn't have to when they get a bigger block handed to them? Why should your *customers* bear the burden of this policy? My point: you shouldn't, and your customer's shouldn't. You should, as a multi-homed ISP, be able to get a /19 immediately and without obstruction - period. -- -- Karl Denninger (karl@MCS.Net)| MCSNet - Serving Chicagoland and Wisconsin http://www.mcs.net/ | T1's from $600 monthly / All Lines K56Flex/DOV | NEW!
