There is never a telco circuit between Abovenet and a customer -- it's always a private right of way, usually a piece of fiber but sometimes copper. Abovenet's customers include ISP's and IAP's and ASP's and so on. Your word ("retail") isn't accurate since Abovenet's customers also include IP bandwidth consumers, not just resellers. But it's absolutely true that our equipment is always colocated with the customer's equipment. Sometimes it's our location, sometimes it's the customer's location, sometimes it's a third party's location. But it's always some shared location, thus the term "colocation". If there any other questions about Abovenet, please address them to me privately unless you're REALLY SURE that all of NANOG wants to hear the question (and my near-inevitable answer.) -- Paul Vixie <Paul.Vixie@MMFN.COM> CTO and SVP, MFN (NASDAQ: MFNX) AboveNet, PAIX, and MIBH are subsidiaries of Metromedia Fiber Network, Inc.
