I have about 5 GB of IP transit connections from Level3 across 8 markets

on the IP transit side.  

MFN/AboveNet has also been very good to us.

Another happy Level3 customer.  

We have a similarly sized connection to MFN/AboveNet, which I won't
recommend at this time due to some very questionable null routing they're
doing (propogating routes to destinations, then bitbucketing traffic sent
to them) which is causing complaints from some of our customers and
forcing us to make routing adjustments as the customers notice
MFN/AboveNet has broken our connectivity to these destinations.

Or as they say, I encourage my competitors buy from them.
