I have a customer that has a 3 meg link into my backbone providers network. Unfortunately they are not getting
anywhere near 3 megs between their 3 meg link and my 100meg direct connect over this backbone network. (Lucky to get 1
meg) The existing provider is 'reluctant to reroute traffic over a more optimal link for 1 customer'. (I'll keep my
venting to myself on this one..)
Lets say I add another provider that has a peering point 12ms away from this customer. Is it possible to route this
traffic through the alternative provider?
I guess the easy solution would be to advertise only this customers specific network to the alternative provider.
I know this is a vague question, just would appreciate some opinions and thoughts.
