frame relay vs managed IP VPN

By Daygo_171 ·
We are currently using frame relay to connect 27 remote sites to a central host. The cost averages around $230 per site for a DSO. We are considering moving to a managed IP VPN network proposed to us by Bellsouth and AT&T. Has anyone else here made that sort of change? I am concerned about reliability and not having to play the "its-broken-but-not-my-fault" game. When my frame sites go down I know what trees to shake to get it back up in a timely matter.

thanks in advance

We use it and it's working just fine. We use ATT for our internet service and Verisign to manage the firewalls. It costs about 55k per year for Verisign and and 9000 /yr per site for the internet service if you have all T1's. You can do ADSL as well which is about 3500/yr. We have 10 sites.
