Re: using BGP

Kaustubh,

BGP doesn't take the bandwidth into consideration. The path having been selected by the BGP best path selection process will be usede even if the next hop is reachable via a lower speed link.

Re: using BGP

Use

set as-path prepend

for the isp with low bandwidth. So the then shortest as-path ( better bandwidth ) link is preferred than other
