Tier-Two Provider - Networking

A tier-two provider is generally a regional ISP that uses multiple connections from different ISP's to transmit data across the backbone. Onramp, the first acquisition by Verio, had internal highspeed links between Dallas, Lubbock, Fort-Worth, Austin, and Waco, but used other ISP's to send it's data out to the Internet.
