Any 128k connection shared by 300 machines is gonna suck... ISDN, IDSL,
frame realy, frac T1... it doesn't matter. Yes, the phone company blew
it with ISDN. *But*... with Metricom/Ricochet dead, Rhythms maybe dying
soon, Covad soon to follow... it might be a viable alternative.
I found out that it isn't a product being sold right now, but our Sales
Manager is going to bring this up with his boss Monday.
