Router Advice

Ok, so we're going to be getting our own dedicated lines to a colo in Chicago. At this point is looks like we are going to be running L3 and XO over BGP (we have our own ASN.)

The problem here is that it's been a while since I've needed to do much with routers. I come from a Cisco background where the ol' 2600's were cool. So, I 'm after some advice on what router to go for. What would people recommend? We will quite possibly go as high as a four provider mix. The router should only be handling about 20mbit at a time with 80mbit or so available.

Also, are there any preferences out there as to a carrier neutral DC?

Is the colo going to be in chicago proper or could it go into the burbs? If it's in the burbs I know of one that google is using and another one that is going to be up and running in september. As for routers, 3600's should be fine for the bandwidth you stated.

The issue is the DC has to be carrier neutral. Given it is, I'm relatively happy with wherever. We currently have some servers at Gigenet but they aren't too open to our needs in this situation. Where do you suggest?

Savvis, It's in elk grove. http://www.savvis.net/corp That's where google has about 5000 square feet.
Stargate. in oak park i believe http://www.stargateinc.com/ it's a new facility coming on-line near the end of the year.
Both are carrier neutral.
