    Question please compare, Net Depot and NOC

    Many webhosts seem to use Hurricane Electric, Net Depot, or Network Operations Center. I was wondering which datacenter has better (faster) internet connectivity. Also, on a related note, how do you guys determine which webhosts have a fast connection and which ones don't? Simply looking at their network information doesn't seem to help, and pinging the site is very geographically-specific.

    If you can't find information on their website... why not email them?

    You think you'll find somewhere here who knows more about the network connectivity of a company than they do themselves?

    I think he wanted a outsiders opinion.. something that wont be one sided.

    If he emails one company, there is no way in hell they will say "Oh yes we are OK.. but NOC have much greater connectivity therfor you should go with them!"..

    Instead they will convince you that they are the best of the best.

    I have heard recently that Hurricane Electric is very good, although have no experience with them personally. Try doing a search on all three NOC's here on WHT.

    You could ping and trace from various parts of the world using a tools like those discussed at - this will help give some indications. It may also be a good idea to run these at different times across a number of days/weeks.

    42 is known for top quality bandwidth, with very good routes. As far as being a customer of a customer of, that's entirely a different story. FWIW, some traceroutes, which obviously don't prove much since it's only to their http server, but anyways:

    2 ( [AS 6939] 0 msec 0 msec 4 msec
    3 ( [AS 6939] 0 msec 0 msec 0 msec

    60 ms across the country is pretty damn good.
