Hi Donald

It's actually ethernet only and by technology wise it's always usual drop
on ethernet and with ethernet I mean ethernet protocol delivered via usual
RJ45 copper or LC/SC fiber interfaces. It's just weird that industry around
here still does pricing in STM 1 / STM 4 etc. On SDH transport it stays as
usual but on internet transit it's always bandwidth in whatever x STMs
delivered over ethernet pipe.

So you will find people talking of their buying or selling price as yearly
STM1 price rather than per Mbps/month or 1Gig monthly price. So one cannot
easily buy 100Mbps but rather be quoted for a STM1 price or 6 STMs for a
Gig kind of requirement. :)
