Earthlink has moved all existing customers and all new customers, who have Covad provisioned DSL lines, to Covad's network. This means that you no longer go through Earthlink's redback servers. You go through Covad's servers and your login information is proxied from there.
Some users may have had the 1.5/384 service via Covad before. This was a contract that Covad had with Mindspring before Earthlink and Mindspring merged together. For those of you who had this service, you will still have it.
New customers will only get the 1.5/128 service as advertised on the Earthlink web site (or up to 3.0/384 service if you are under 10,000 feet from the CO). Everything else stays the same as far as your Earthlink service is concerned, but your routing goes through Covad now. In general, this has shown to be much faster as far as latency is concerned for the users.
