    [UK] Average price for Clara.net BW?

    Hello.

    Does anyone have any numbers they can show me?
    I've never really seen many people offering BW from Clara and would like to know what the price is like.

    The only people ive worked with that use Clara.net BW is Ultraspeed.co.uk,
    Very solid network would be nice to consider Clara.net in the future.

    Regards,

    I'd drop them an email, but I'm quite concerned that they don't have IP transit listed as a service on their website!

    I know they have a reasonably good network (we peer with them!), but you may be better of looking somewhere where IP transit is part of their core business rather than just something they do on the side if you ask nicely

    Just my 2p.

    they maintian some kit @ interhouse 2 (meridian gate) from which they supply transit to people.

    offhand only compnay i can think of that takes their transit is ultraspeed, and they get it from clara directly.

    best bet would simply be to call them up, i'm not aware that anyone resells their transit - why would they, when you cango direct.

    Yeah, I could only think of USUK too, heh.
    I'll ask if they are allowed to tell me anything.

    My operation is to small at the moment to harass Clara.net directly

    Karl,

    UK Dedicated moved to Global Switch.

    Does Clara offer colocation/transit there? or is it the leftovers from before they moved Colo'ed with them?

    I'm aware of where they moved, they moved there because Clara moved the majority of their kit to Global Switch (and left just enough behind in Redbus ot provide transit to customers in Redbus) and not because of any other reason.

    No worries, could have worded what I said a bit better, that's what you get for typing whilst you're on the phone.

    Clara.net is quite cheap at a good high level CDR (100 mbits +)

    Burstfire use clara.net as well.
    Not the best network in the world, you can get better for a lower price, have you checked out KPN?

    My bad.

    When i went to www.netscalibur.co.uk
    It was down for whatever reason....

    They own the netscaliber.co.uk also.

    However your both correct as the company name is Netscalibur.

    Sorry Manu, I've still not managed to go to bed... I really cant do anything right just now, heh... /me stays away from WHT!

    Clara offer co-location in Global Switch, and probably transit on its own as well, if you ask.

    Their network has been pretty good in my experience (last 15 months).

    They have and do provide plenty of transit service to customers in Redbus so I wouldn't say it not being listed on their web site is a major issue. As to price, all depends on the CDR required, they are a bit pricey on low CDR.

    As for number of visible traceroute hops, it doesn't mean a great deal these days when analysing someones network. Hint: not all networks are IP based at the lowest level, only IP routers will show up on traceroute.
