FDC & Yipes

Before anyone says it; yes I've done the search..I know all about what has happened to FDC recently.

What I'd like to hear is how their colocation plans are right now. I see un-metered shared 100mbit connection...I can't possibly imagine that being very reliable.

I could be wrong though; does anyone have a server hosted with them on this plan? How are the response times and such on the connection? Would you host a small number of clients on such a connection?

Also, are they back to using Cogent again? I did a traceroute on the server they have adveritised as "one of our customers bandwidth meter" on their website but it traces to cogent. Is FDC using cogent again and possibly falsely claiming to be offering un-metered non-cogent bandwidth; or did this person leave FDC and they simply haven't taken that link off their site?

I think that a section of their lines were not shut down... or something like that

Or cogent has reissued the IP to someone else. They usally reissue them fast.

I'm currently getting some packet loss, ugh... I thought this was done away with when Yipes was brought in.

Packets: Sent = 100, Received = 83, Lost = 17 (17% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 60ms, Maximum = 160ms, Average = 70ms

Been around for too long...

The "client" that has the bandwidth meter was up 100% during the FDC Cogent downtime, so I'm not sure it is really an FDC client.

The rwhois on that IP shows:

org-name Arrow Futures and Options
street-address 141 W Jackson Blvd Ste. 3805
city Chicago
state IL
postal-code 60604

Maybe that's FDC's new partnership (the multiple companies getting a new DC as partners)?

That part of their network was setup before they became FDCservers, so it's registered under a different business name. Cogent never shut it down as they didn't know (and by the look of it still don't know) that those IP's are actually FDCservers.

Amaroq is a client, he signed up with them about 2 days before I did when kingcomp first started dedicated hosting. Unlike Amaroq, I left as I got sick of the bad service. I realised it was time to stop looking for the cheapest solution and look for more realistic offers.

As Tazzman said, it is indeed a box located (well, colocated) at FDC.
