Hey Milo,

I would pay very good attention on how the details of the interconnection.

Where are the E1 going to be connected?

Will you run a fiber to the TELCO backhaul the E1s into your place? Or are
you going to place the servers at each of your providers location?

It's much safer and easier to manage, if you can take the E1s out of your
provider Central and into your own place.

I would start there.
