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

That depends on your definition of "facilities based". As a CLEC, we still depended entirely on the ILEC for T1 loops (installation, troubleshooting/repair, etc.).

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?

Not if they're different ILECs / different LATAs. If you're in an AT&T CO in city A, and a Centurylink CO in city B, and an AT&T CO in city C, you're going to need a 3rd party, preferably with their own fiber, to connect all the POPs together or back to some central hub site where you have your internet connectivity.
