Re: v6 multihoming (Re: The Choice: IPv4 Exhaustion or Transition to IPv6)

Hi Stephen,

Supose you have STM4 links, ok?
And you have 2G of trafic from your 100000 ADSL customers, ok?
And those STM4 go to 3 dif carriers in USA.
Then, how you advertise only one IPv6 prefix to all and make the 2G go 
trough one STM4 ?
