If you're suggesting that Qwest is the only carrier using railroad
right
of ways I suggest you take a closer look at those little orange posts
running along the side of train tracks.. I've seen MCI, Worldcom,
AT&T,
sprint and others running along the same tracks from Seattle to
Portland.

it shouldn't be?  Or are you looking at other, more secure mediums
for the
bulk of your traffic?
