March 30, 2007

Response of the Office of Chief Counsel
Division of Corporation Finance


DSL.net, Inc.
Incoming letter dated March 29, 2007

Based on the facts presented, the Division will not object if DSL.net stops filing periodic and current reports under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, including its annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2006. In reaching this position, we note that DSL.net has filed post-effective amendments removing from registration unsold securities under all effective registration statements on Form S-3 and Form S-8 and those registration statements are effective. We assume that, consistent with the representations made in your letter, DSL.net will file a certification on Form 15 making appropriate claims under Exchange Act Rules 12g-4 and 12h-3 on or before the due date of its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2006.

This position is based on the representations made to the Division in your letter. Any different facts or conditions might require the Division to reach a different conclusion. Further, this response expresses the Division's position on enforcement action only and does not express any legal conclusion on the question presented.
