RE: Tier-1 without their own backbone?

I have a Level-3 OC-3 in Miami. So far they have proved to be more
stable than my other 2 upstreams. Never had a problem with their
helpdesk either!

Subject: Tier-1 without their own backbone?



We are sending out feelers for adding an additional DS-3, or possibly
frac
OC-3.  One of the responses came back with "we won't be competive with
<provider> because they don't have their own backbone.

Is there a cross-reference for provider vs network backbone, or is
this
just
something that we have to ask each provider for?  I "assume" that UU,
Sprint,
and AT&T are self-owned backbones, but others... ?

One of the providers we are looking at is Level-3.  Any comments
good/bad
on
reliability and clue?  We already have UU, Sprint, and AT&T.  I also
realize
that the "they suck less" list changes continuously... :)

Thanks,
Rick
