No, but I have another ATTBI question. In my experience (Watertown,
M1X customer for close to 3 years), ATTBI's routes have started to
suck immensely. There are numerous websites I can get to from my
office but not from my home---,,
and a host of others. I've used traceroute and confirmed that most
of the problems seem to be with ATT's peering to other backbone

I've called tech support several times about the fact that their
routing is hosed and that they need to check these things out, and
I've gotten nothing useful. The techs always want to coach me
through clearing my browser cookies and other useless chickenwaving.
Moreover, they can't even give me an incident tracking number where
I can check to see that my problem's been addressed.

Has anyone had these problems with ATTBI and had success in
resolving them? What's the secret?
