My impression [which could be wrong] was that the 10Plus service was
delivered over clear channel DS3 between netedges and the actual 10Mbit/s
portion was dealt with at the media exchange. I didn't know/think they
formatted the DS3 as an ATM 10mbit/s circuit.
Then again, I have never ordered 10Plus service.

Well, the ATM connection to the Net Edge box is only setup to do 10Mbps,
so at 6Mbps on ATM, you've filled your cells. I think the whole ideaology
behind the thing is flawed, and if they're going to sell something they
call 10 Plus, they need to at least provide 10 of something other than
10Mbps in theory. I'm not happy with UUNet (it took 5 months to get the
Net Edge box replaced), and I doubt they will have anything but the
smallest possible presence in our network in the future.
