Fluidata received notice from RIPE on Tuesday that they now have just a /10 left before their last /8 of IPv4 addresses. What this means is, that at current allocation levels, there is about 1 months’ worth of IPv4 space left across Europe before RIPE have to start issuing from their last ever block.

How fast is my service?

Posted by Dan Pope on 15/09/10 15:26

With Ofcom keen to set restrictions on advertised internet speeds, it is important to remember the difficulties in assessing the potential speed a user can get until the service has been installed. Back in the old days with fixed rate products, such as BT ADSL IPStream and SDSL, it was much easier to downgrade a user’s service to the next available product if the bandwidth they desired was technically not possible to deliver. However with the advent of ‘up to’ services customers receive the fastest speed their line can support for the same monthly charge.

Resiliency, take responsibility

Posted by Dan Pope on 06/07/09 10:08

As more customers move applications into the cloud, it is becoming paramount that their WAN connectivity can handle the increased usage demands it is being subjected to. Equally as important is the resiliency and strength of the underlying circuits. However, not every error  can be prevented and we are increasingly seeing issues outside of our network that are affecting your use of our circuits. Be that exchanges being robbed or contractors cutting through fibre or copper cables laid.
