Being at the
end of a 6,000 foot T1 circuit to a CO is the worst of both worlds.
Hum... but in this case I have direct control on the
physical access to my hardware. For some, this outweighes
the "proximity to diversity" of telecoms paths. If I want
(non-authentic) copies of the data spread far and wide, thats
a service I can buy from a number of suppliers. I don't have
to put -MY- hardware close to the telecoms mesh. I want my
keyserver where I know I can protect it from barbarian hordes.
In such a case, a long, thin gauntlet might be the best choice.
