poll: are any sizable exchange points using gigabit ether?

or are folks pretty much (ATM?)-switch tech'ed?

or do folks have plans to migrate to gig ether
(or to definitely Not to, for some reason?)

(or change 'gig ether' to some other
imminent.technology.that.might.be.
compelling.enuf.to.displace.atm)
  
if u wanna send messages 2 me
i'll compile/post to save b/w
(which presumably saves much more b/w
if am posting via atm switches but etc)

Hiya kc!

ATM: A Total Mess.

For connectivity to NAP's like CA*Net 3, GigE.

Problem with gigE is distance though...
So ATM may be the answer for the short term.

  Long Haul GE is capable of the usual ~5-10 mile distances as anything
else running over singlemode fiber.
  In theory it could be run over sonet, though I don't believe hardware
exists to do that (yet?) or if it would be worthwhile. There appear to be
(http://www.positronfiber.com/pfs/nav/products/ether_set.htm) devices to run
fast ether over sonet. Anyone actually using something like this care to
comment?
