    Why would you need a reseller?
    If you want their service, just buy it directly from them...

    Fastnet(FSST) is a Tier 2 provider....they use Cogent & Qwest I believe....they are not that big of a company, thought they are publicly traded...they are our largest regional competition, but their network capacity is alot less than ours...

    Why not go directly to Cogent or Qwest?

    I beleive they own netcarrier.net, netcarrier offers colocation and other web services. They have by far the fastest network I have ever seen, do a search on here for "jynx.net". I can get more details about the company, I know a guy who works for them.

    They recently bought netaxys which had a pretty good network, and had had the largest datacenter in philadelphia. They seem to be doing what Verio did a few years back... grow to critical mass by buying other ISPs. Unlike Verio though they seem to be buying up only quality properties.

    No their not....not even close....they are only a few times bigger than us actually. They are our largest regional competitor, the only competitor really in our backyard, so we know ALOT about them.

    Take a look at their stock prices as well...they are about to drop below $1.00 a share...even after the spent millions on Netaxs.

    Sean,I hate to burst (snicker) your bubble but Fast.net is a whole lot larger that Burst.net.

    Question, does Burst.net do over (or even close to) $1,400,000.00 / mo in sales. I seriously doubt it.
