Are there any notable differences between the cities outside of the obvious fact that they're in diffrent places? (eg. the bandwidth/routing, accessability for emergency maintenance etc). Also, do you operate your own AS and allow co-location customers to speak BGP?
Our core network is in London so that's the best place to have your equipment. Manchester is a secondary site for Disaster Recovery clients that need diverse locations, the other POPs are just for picking up transit and peering.
Also, do you operate your own AS and allow co-location customers to speak BGP?
Yes, we operate our own ASN, and we can speak BGP to colo customers that have their own routers.
