We now have access to Telia dial access numbers for single and dual channel access. We have been unable to resolve issues with MegaPOP dual channel access. Specifically, they are inflexible with respect to the 200 hour channel cap, and working through a reseller that has a flat-rate contract, there are problems binding dual channels. Telia provides an alternative, there is no 200 hour channel cap and in testing we've done so far, customers who weren't able to get channels to bond properly on MegaPOP are having success with the Telia numbers. Customers have also commented that the routing is much better on Telia. Unfortunately we can not offer static IP's on Telia. There are dynamic DNS services that may offer an alternative solution for things like ETRN polling. These work by having DNS for a domain dynamically change with your connections IP address. One such services is DYNODNS.net, http://www.dynodns.net/, and I know there are others but this one comes to mind at the moment. Telia also provides access in some areas not fomerly served. Pricing on dial access has been adjusted, short term rates for all of the access lines are higher (shorter than half-year), and MegaPOP/UUNET is higher, but Telia is priced where MegaPOP/UUNET was. I would encourage you to consider Qwest or Telia as an alternative to MegaPOP/UUNET. We've seen lots of technical problems with MegaPOP and after the implimentation of the 200 hour channel cap on dual channel accounts one has to wonder how long before they try to apply it to single channels. UUNET, although they do not state up front any time limit, I get nasty grams from them monthly about users "abusing the net", meaning they're keeping the connections up too long. I have not experienced these problems with Qwest and I've been assured that Telia is also flat-rate. I will continue to accept payments at the old rates up until June 15th of this year.
