It' not an official peering point, but you might be surprised what's in Chattanooga. There is a LOT of voice and data cross-connects here, because all this fiber on rail-road right of ways ends up where the railroads are.. Chattanooga. As far DSL, BellSouth is about all that's left, Covad and everyone else has pulled. We do a little BellSouth DSL Resale, but not much. We have rather interesting facilities with fiber from KMC, EPB Telecom, and soon the Chattanooga MetroNet. We also have private fiber into several of the upstreams in the neighborhood (WorldCom/UUnet primarily) and are next door to Sprint, TCI DeltaCom, Excel, Williams, Qwest.. BellSouth is a little difficult to work with locally and they only have copper into our facility but they are the only physical provider of xDSL copper pairs in town. meuon@.. is a 'trashable' e-mail address, my business info is: firstname.lastname@example.org 423-267-8867, 423-266-6536 cell: 423-314-4220 If I can help any, yell.
