From: email@example.com (Randy Bush)
Some weeks back, I whined about SprintLink's policies and implementation in
respect to multi-homing. They did not leak the multi-homer's more specific
prefix outside of SprintLink. Nor did they accept the longer prefix from
outside, hence traffic from SL customers would die when the MHed site's SL
link was down.
I just wanted to publicly thank SprintLink, and Hank Kilmer and his team in
particular, for fixing this. IMIHO, this makes SprintLink a reasonable
choice for a provider if you intend to multi-home.
Hmmm, well, as I reported here earlier, we already changed our ISP
contract away from Sprint. But, for my clients, based on your
representation that it is finally working, I suppose that I might be
willing to at least allow Sprint in future multi-home bids, as long as
the contract specifically requires Sprint to be on better behaviour.
Thanks for the update, Randy!
