Um. Doesn't colo in various ILEC/CLEC CO == facilities based CLEC?

order T1 loops (but it's only half a loop...from customer to CO), so
you're saving there, and because you're ordering it as a CLEC, most
people would be shocked how cheap a T1 can be. Connect the various
colos together with a network of T1's and T3's (especially if you can
establish a relationship with a carrier who's on-net in all or most of
the COs you want to be in), and you're set.

Interesting. Can't you just ride the existing network between the CO
locations? For a fee of course, but I would think it could be all
ethernet based and just pay per mb or something?

Someone looking to start this model now, I'd say is about 10 years
late, 5 years too late.

Yeah. Building ones own network is a bit... difficult. At least to serve
on a competitive basis.
