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
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.
