Re: sprint passes uu?

transit prices have been in free fall, and worldcom has not been following
them downward.  however, after the cleansing ritual of chapter 11, i think
they will be in a fine position to reset their per-megabit charges in ways
that make them a compelling transit provider.  their network's been great.

Yes, the network is, and always has been great. (well, except for that one little blip a couple of weeks ago...) In our seven year relationship we were always impressed with the the NOC staff and support group at UUnet.

However auditing their invoices was always an exercise in frustration. Circuits that were long-ago cancelled re-appearing time and time again, blatant overcharges, completely incomprehensible account number changes. I used to think it was incompetence or confusion caused by growth and acquisitions (having some personal experience with the latter.) I guess it has been recently revealed as felonious behavior. I'd be a fool to go down that path again.

I'm sorry to say but, I'll be officiating ice hockey games in hell before doing business with UUnet again.
