Nevin, I made that comment and I made it in April 2000, not May 1999. You would have been right as of May 1999, but as of April 2000 I was right and you were actually mistaken in your "correction". :o( AboveNet used to start at about $480/m at the date you rejoined, but was $1300/m minimum as of April 2000 and about that as of summer 2001 as well. It's not that they increased their prices across the board, but rather that they won't dip down to 64 or 128 kbps anymore for smaller customers... they simply start their services at no less than 1mbps. Which is certainly their choice as a private business. BTW, I imagine that old competitors like AboveNet and certainly the "Colo 2.0" folks like Equinix will benefit from the recent financial collapse of Exodus. Time will tell! Good luck to every entity in the industry.
