Were always adding new last-mile options, particularly on the
business side.

IPv4 and IPv6, both with two transit providers (not to bash on
cogent, but when they have a peering dispute, you dont have any way
to route around that, those issues dont affect us).

And unlike our Verizon friends, we will not choke your Netflix,
Google or Amazon (CLOUD!) traffic.  We dont have a giant captive
audience of eyeballs like TWC or VZ, so peering is a benefit to us,
not a lost revenue stream.


Im not totally comfortable pimping here, but if anyone wants to chat
about megaproviders vs.  local providers without actually speaking
of Bway.net directly, thats always an interesting conversation.
