Transit Update! Out with Global Crossing and in with Hurricane Electric

As Global Crossing were purchased by Level3 some time ago, and Gconnect were using both Global Crossing and Level3 as two of our four transit providers, we decided to use Hurricane Electric as a new provider to replace Global Crossing. Hurricane Electric have been long time IPv6 advocates and have a global peering network which is almost unmatched. We have connected from our Telecity Reynolds POP and so far the results have been excellent. This now restores our 4 independent ‘Tier 1′ transit provider policy leaving our AS33941 object showing:
