Reach does, I'm sure.  Contacting them would be the smart thing.

Then again, it sounds like you aren't a REACH customer. 
Generally, networks only offer traffic preference communities 
to their customers.  One should not have any expectation of 
remote-control -by communities or any other means- beyond the 
borders of the networks with whom you have direct relations.

It sounds like you should be discussing with your provider
what they can do for you, perhaps demanding reach-specific 
communities or making sure there's more particular performance
criteria in your contracts.
