Here is the official BellSouth company line.

A lot of marketing hype.  However some key points:
- Planning for four POPs in south FL which will be fully messed via a DWDM core.  
- Only one POP will be for co-lo.
- First phase will be ATM.  Planning on offering Ethernet soon.
- Will be carrier independent.  Will not be tied to BellSouth, you can use any carrier to connect into a POP.
