I might not have made myself clear.  We will be buying ISP services
('net connections) from two different providers.

We are looking at other products for server load balancing.  I've 
kinda narrowed it down to Alteon, RADWare, and Foundry.  But that's
for server load balancing, not for load balancing between providers.
