  Let's look at a hypothetical situation. ISP1 peers at MAE-E and
buys transit from MCI there. Now they ask Sprint to peer with them.


look at how they reach sites on the west coast.

This is a violation of the rules of Mae-East: it is not to be used for
customer connections. ISP1 must have a private connection to MCI.


Are you saying that MFS will not allow a private connection between two
routers located at the MAE facility, even if the connection is _not_ made
using the MAE FDDI switch, but is instead a direct (e.g. HSSI or AIP)
connection between the two routers?? If so, I haven't seen any
documentation to that effect...
