Yes, but a more appropriate look would be:>sh ip bgp
BGP routing table entry for, version 8111131
Paths: (8 available, best #1)
  Not advertised to any peer
  1239 174, (aggregated by 174 from (
      Origin IGP, localpref 1000, valid, internal, atomic-aggregate, best    
(All the rest have identical paths)

AS 1239 is sprint.

HOWEVER, something is fishy here.   I remember from the last exodus go
around that exodus at that point was paying (I believe) the circuit costs
and (definately) NOT doing outbound hot-potato routing (I.E. they were
carrying the traffic cross-country both ways).  If this is still their
standard policy, then I'm not sure why psi would pull the plug.   Now, if
PSI was paying for the DS3's....  That's a different story.
