Thousands of ISPs that collectively add up to a pimple on a horse's ass. In practice you have two dominant landline providers in each market, the ILEC and the cable company. A duopoly with a competitive fringe. Whereas other countries like South Korea and France have achieved much higher

Hi, I am helping a carrier on a new fiber build. Trying to determine where to collocate in this building. There is no central meet-me room, but instead there are three 'gangs' - landlord and two major colo providers. [] Any insight on the best provider in this facility would be appreciated.

Last Week's Canadian Fiber Cut

Did we ever get any resolution on why this was such a big outage? Appears there were two fiber cuts. Were the fibers damaged in the same conduit? Is this a collapsed ring scenario? http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfoundland-labrador/concerns-about-backup-bell-outage-1.4239064 Roderick Beck

How well does this service work? I understand it usually involves point-to-multipoint Switched Ethernet with VLANs and resold IX ports. Sounds like a service for ISP that would like to peer, but have relatively small volumes for peering purposes or lopsided volumes. Roderick Beck Director of

Agreed, however over the next 50 to 100 years you might see a big migration North as temperature continue rising and continuous shipping via the Northern passage. The Quintillion cable is really being built to link Asia and Europe via an ultra low latency path. Attaching fiber spurs to those
