That process seems to be getting quicker:

NOT an ISP product.

Independent of ED, one should be cautious when designing routing protocols based on logistical and business assumptions (e.g., switching providers takes awhile, most business policies are vanilla peering, etc.).

These assumptions are certainly not fundamental, and they may not always be true, regardless of what exists today


This is strictly a market-maker product, IMHO, which is different from a
transition or provisioning strategy. YMMV.

ISP's don't switch providers, typically, enterprises do. ISP's add, move,
and drop, so physical layer management is more important, believe it or not.
