The limitations of BGP routing in the Internet are often blamed
for poor end-to-end performance and prolonged connectivity in-
terruptions. Recent work advocates using overlays to effectively
bypass BGP's path selection in order to improve performance and
fault tolerance. In this paper, we explore the possibility that intel-
ligent control of BGP routes, coupled with ISP multihoming, can
provide competitive end-to-end performance and reliability. Using
