MCI position on Class C... (fwd)

Just thought everyone should be privy to this with one correction. Again
it is not standard MCI policy to send new ISP's to the InterNic. We fully
support and conform to RFC 2050 and the guidelines that the InterNic sets
forth regarding the allocation/assignment of registered Internet address
space. Thank you.

I did some more research into this after I sent the response to the list
and what had happened was a misunderstanding with the network folks...They
assumed I was a starting ISP (even though I provided them with MCI Ckt #'s
and the such) and said I must go thru InterNIC to receive my Class C (which
IS standard MCI policy)....From that point on I draw from their pool as I
was previously informed....I guess an honest mistake at the MCI end from
someone who may have been a wee bit tired....
