Vote with your dollars and find a provider with clue?  It's the only way
you'll get the service you want.

And also, dear god a /112.  It's giving me a flash back to a tier 2 carrier I
consulted for about 2 years ago.  Their guy (who was a CCNP :rolleyes:), threw
out my plans as being wasteful of space (each site a /48 out of a /40
reservation, each network a /64, etc.).  The entire thing was done out of a
/112 at each site with /120's for subnets.

Course this same guy asked why we needed oc-48's between locations, he wanted
to get bonded gigE's of IP transport and do a VPN......
