RE: Non-ISP companies multi-homing?

What's interesting to me is the few brave souls who are geographically
dispersed corporations using their own WAN for multihoming.  If you already
have leased lines between your offices and each office has its own internet
access through a local provider, you can protect against failures of the
local providers by rerouting over the WAN leased-lines to another office
and popping out on *their* local provider's link.

Very cost effective, since you already are paying for the "backup link"
anyways as part of your enterprise network.
