It could, I suppose... but it's not too likely. I presume you mean that they terminate Full- and Frac-T services on different routers at their end? Maybe, but who cares? I've done this sort of thing on Frame circuits, and it runs just the way he expected: you put two people on the circuit on the phone, they both flip the same switched at the same time, and your throughput changes. If they'll _upgrade_ you from Frac- to Full- that way, why in hell won't they downgrade you? The finances should be immaterial to the engineering, in this case. Cheers, -- jra -- Jay R.
