My company owns a class C, and we're switching ISPs. The "new" provider is
telling us that they can start announcing, without us having to tell the old

announcing our class C.
This conflicts with my extremely (admittedly)limited knowledge. Can someone
let me know if this is OK/not OK?
Originating the same prefix from two different ASes violates the RFC (or
whatever bible you might pray to), but works most of the time.
See "show ip bgp inconsistant-as" on cisco. YMMV.
