RE: InterNAP?

Since they don't own the backbone, their SLAs apply only to their PNAPs,
i.e. they cannot guarantee performance, packet loss, delay, outages, etc
over somebody else's backbone (e.g. Sprint, UUNet, AT&T, etc).

Many large enterprises are leveraging on the Internet to deploy VPN
connectivity between company sites as a replacement for Frame Relay or ATM
PVCs. In such cases, it's very important to make sure that the service comes
with the right SLAs.

Subject: InterNAP?

I need your opinion on InterNAP.  I am currently have a DS3 to my current 
provider and want to add an additional DS3 for redundancy to the same 
location.  We plan to run BGP4 on both connections.

InterNap has some technology to avoid congested peering points. Does this 
technology actually work?  Isn't it impossible to avoid these peering 
points?  What are your experiences with InterNAP?
