I hear that Level 3 is good but do they handle small stuff like T-1?
We may be looking to dual-home soon and will be looking around.
Remember, Level(3) bought (at least some of) genuity/bbn.
I was always impressed with the genuity folks. We just switched a DS3 to
AS3356 backbone from AS1 on Monday. Smoothest turn up I've ever had.

I have about 5 GB of IP transit connections from Level3 across 8 markets
(plus using their facilities for our backbone). Level3 has been very
solid on the IP transit side.
MFN/AboveNet has also been very good to us.
