   Well at MAE-E , FDDI ;) (We have a pending deal to move some exchange
neighbors
to direct ATM OC-3/DS3, to route around the MAE)


   However, passing back into the our national fabric, we tend to run
VBR-NRT, with
a few UBR's, and a few RT-VBR tunnels.

   It becomes an Exchange Fabric in and of itself. See Ameritech VNAP,
and OneCall's IndyX
offerings.
