We've been checking with our two regional upstreams and the answer seems
to vary between 'not yet...', 'testing...', 'we're planning...' etc.
I've been checking with my technical contacts, vs sales people. Perhaps
if there was a drive from the sales perspective I could get more
traction - money talks.

In the mean time, we've setup a tunnel with HE. At least our network
will be tested and ready to go whenever native transit is available.
