We had service with Verio for several years. Don't expect to be able to resolve BGP issues any time other than 9-5pm. First level dedicated access tech support is sometimes difficult to reach and can be extremely clueless. Billing is an utter basket case. I really like the part where Verio closed the Toledo POP and left town but is still billing us for service. I'm waiting for them to call and threaten to shut us off - that should be a fairly humorous conversation. The network itself was decent. Good connectivity and low latency but I wouldn't expect it to last much longer. Mark Radabaugh Amplex (419) 833-3635
