That is wonderful news Dave;  I appreciate your correction.

We are working on a trial of Etherloop equipment.  We will be testing
the 10mb/sec generation, not the Etherloop2 100mb/sec generation.  We
hope to start passing data in the late October timeframe.

We are not an independent testing body, but a ISP/CLEC providing high
speed via the CATV and the PSTN.  However, we will do the best we can
to accurately report the conditions under which we test, and the test
results.  We can't provide a truely independent test bed, but at least
we can accurately and completely report the biases of our environment.
