Re: New NAP

I know this is a little late (I was on my honeymoon), but we're also
running the Compaq NAP here in Houston, TX.  And yes, MFS seems to be
really anxious to cut costs and deal with competing efforts such as ours,
but the fact that they can cut prices that drasticly does make one think.
However, I'm for anything that makes the exchange of data on a local
geographical area whether it's run by Insync/Compaq or whoever.

Oh, and for information on the NAP, contact curtisj () insync net

Has anyone heard about a new MFS NAP being planned/built in Texas area?

Don't know about any MFS NAPs.  I would be realize supprised if they
thought that they could compete with my efforts.  We are bringing
up a new Dallas exchange point in Feb.  Apparently MFS is dropping
prices on its MAE services in areas with competing exchanges by about
90% if you are an existing MFS customer.  Which is the kinda of
drop you would expect from monopolistic pricing and poor service
typical of MFS.
See http://www.fc.net/map for more info on non telco locally
operated exchange points.
