ANS will continue to be connected to Mae-East+ through E147 after
April 30.  The switch from E136 to E147 is a capacity upgrade to
Mae-East+ that the NSFNET will have use of until the entire NSFNET
backbone service is retired on April 30.


ps - Elise, could you try not to word your messages about the
retirement of NSFNET service in such a way that it makes it appear as
though ANS is removing attachments in places where we are going to
remain.  ANS is not retiring with the NSFNET service and would
appreciate it if Merit did not make it appear that way.
