Screwy majordomo... -request should come to me.

	one wilshire is a carrier hotel so you get a pot-full
	of carriers there.
	4676 has three, WCOM, GTE, ATT/TCG. GTE is placing
	new capacity in, WCOM claims near saturation and 
	there are no known plans. ATT/TCG has capacity.

	1 wilshire is still homed behind shared FDDI and is
	quite congested.  4676 is all switched and can take
	GigE although most folks here are half-duplex fastE.
	( hint, hint, the congestion point is that wcom hub, 
	for those of you players that can re-home :)

	4676 has native multicast & IPv6 services. For more
	details, give a shout.  We'd love to have more players
	show and have the capacity (on the 4676 end :)
