To use the public internet, you have to have access to the hardware.

And that would not be possible, unless they have not locked down their routers. Here is more detailed information on the subject:**86a00800a6c11.shtml

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.
If this information is useful, please mark as helpful. Thanks.

Thanks for reply Mr.Peconet,

So,with assumption that we can control (have access) all routers(with MPLS logic) in one MPLS cloud,it could be possible?

I'm asking that because IP MPLS VPN is working at layer 3, which is compatibile with Internet.

You said that "they" have locked down their routers, are you mean Internet providers have locked down their routers?

I'm not sure it can be done,

Unless you have the same Internet provider at all locations. What I understand to be your need is to have a fully mesh network that is oblivious of the provider's network. I've seen that with private network providers. But to use the Internet as the backbone, I figure it can only be done if the provider is the same all the way.
