I guess if it worked for the number one ISP, then it's a good tactic for the
second largest provider.

Just wanted to introduce myself. I would love to talk to you about our
services, we have some of the best prices and service in the industry along
with being the second largest ISP in the world.
PSINet is the only Tier-One ISP that has a fully-switched core backbone
running frame relay rather
than the less efficient PPP protocol. This means that we have the lowest
number of hops across our
backbone, which is optimized for data not voice traffic. PPP does redundant
error checking and does not
allow dynamic bandwidth allocation or Permanent Virtual Circuits, which are
big advantages of PSINet
frame relay. Ultimately PSINet gives better performance for your Internet
Please give me a call so that we can talk more about your needs.
