they've just built their own dc, and so far ive no complaints at all. They're fast with installations, very helpful and a lot better priced than some of the supposed better companies based in london. infrastructures good, peering is good, support and communication of issues all great too
Originally posted by ChrisMayhew I would say PoundHost for support and price, but i find the network speeds lacking alot, i am in the UK and i was getting very bad network speeds and my ISP said that my line was running fine.
If you want a test file feel free to PM me
When you say lacking, what do you mean? Is the latency poor or is it the actual bandwidth you recieve? I would be very interested if you could post some info on this.
No they don't - they have a 2MB to Comindico for incoming and a 1Gigabit link straight to the Optus Backbone, both which they route over to Optus via BGP if utilisation goes over 70%, which it hasn't for a while (In a few months it’ll be 1GB in and out). Protection against DDoS attacks is done at upstream NOC's and routers.
Either way, it’s a better network that having a box in the ‘el cheapo’ Brisbane powertel/datafast datacenter, which if recent events seem to dictate – has absolutely no redundancy at all, let alone anybody in the NOC (if you could call it that) to even fix problems in an acceptable amount of time.
