Anybody know why it requires 29 hops to get at Site5?
I would like to register together,(great space, huge bandwidth, nice user interface, quick answer my presales questions) however i do not understand their connection - appears like they are still with mission too

Yep, we continue to be with Qwest, regrettably.

Sometime over the following week (possibly two), the Qwest connection is going to be changed by 4 DS3 lines into 4 major backbones for example MCI Worldcom, Level3, and 2 others.

We're really searching toward this switch because it increases network speed, in addition to add redundancy in case that certain from the connections fails. If among the connections goes lower, the remaining connections could be roared to life to OC-3 speed (3 DS3's) to handle extra traffic load.

Searching toward dealing with you!
