    Which data centres have you actually worked with and what services were you buying from them?

    As I said, most data centres are carrier neutral, i.e. you buy your connectivity from one or more of the carriers on-site and not the data centre providing the rack space.

    Personally, I wouldn't want to use somebody else's firewalls unless I was taking a fully managed service and would much prefer to run my own so that I have full administrative control over them.

    Presumably configured with a 'drop all from all' rule

    I can categorically state that 99% of DC's will NOT provide firewall protection as standard for the clients

    So maybe some of them use marketing tricks to attract more customers
    Anyway, all is up to client, and as it was asked "What to look for when picking a co-location provider, or data centre." you'd look for protection stuff for sure.

    Think Melbourne offered it as an option but think was more becuase they were using Quagga software routers and so was easy to bolt on for customers
