Looking at options for 10gb wave transport between STL (Walnut) and PHX (PNAP). Both are pop's for lots of carriers, i have relationships with several, some direct and some through the channel.
Centurylink Telia Zayo
Cogent and HE.net both do Ethernet transport which would be an option as well, and wouldnt be taken down by a single fiber cut.
3 year pricing for he.net for the Ethernet transport and wave cost from zayo are pretty close at right around ~$18xx.
I hear Telia can be super competitive on wave's, waiting to hear back on that.
Anyone have price comparisons for long haul? Experiences with any providers listed (or others?)? Any thoughts on wave vs Ethernet? Obviously wave is guaranteed capacity and Ethernet could technically not be.
