If I find "6347 3561 1" works better than "3549 1", I'll tune
local-pref accordingly.  The OP had a much more clear-cut case
where "Cox AT&T XO" left much to be desired.

Of course, note that we discuss outbound traffic.  The OP might
wish for a good return path, too, being a traffic sink.  Without
selective prepends, it's time for some coarse tuning.

Won't start that thread again due to underwhelming interest (at
least when I tried to put together a resource on providers who
offer that).  Looks like the simple answer is: few do.
