Just that you'll have to eat extra circuit costs.  While PAIX is a nicer,
newer and cleaner facility than what MFS has in San Jose for MAE-West; I
don't recall too many failures or complaints about the quality of that
facility.  Ask BBN where their SJ POP is located.

Since I don't think this list has turned into 'network-engineering' I'll
stay away from the P*B NAP vs. MAE-West point. ;-)
