At the moment, we are practicing safe exchange using NAT, with multiple providers, but we are not getting full satisfaction from the relationships. Not all of our services are being utilized to the full enjoyment of our customers. Some hardcore services, like SSL, are not even possible with these relationships. We are looking for two, potentially long-term, relationships that will culminate in mutual satisfaction, where we will be safely protected from any mis-judgements of either of the parties involved. We are looking for a bundled price that includes all connectivity, interchangably with either of the parties, or both. We are looking for two lowest bidders. We don't tolerate incest so those IP-addrs have to be as widely separated as possible, for at least two generations. Two ISPs with the same upstream wont cut it. Even if those upstreams share a common upstream, it is grounds for disqualification. We are looking for good lineage, there is just too much risk of inheriting downstream business problems and we have to protect the well-being of our current customers and future customers that we may both generate.
