I'm probably demonstrating my ignorance here (and my stupidity in stepping into a long-standing highly charged argument), but I'm completely missing something. For reasons of redundancy & reliability, even if you were to buy bandwidth in only one location, wouldn't you want to buy it from at least two different providers?Are you suggesting that either of those (which don't violate any RFCs) options are better than de-aggregating my /20?The best solution is just as everybody here has suggested. Use the same provider for transit at both locations, announce your /20 normally, and your more specifics with no-export.
If you buy bandwidth from two different providers at two different locations, this would seem to me to be a good way to provide backup in case on provider or one location goes Tango-Uniform, and you could always backhaul the bandwidth for the site/provider that is down.
So, what am I missing?
