    Well Cogent will do it if you want to keep your supplier list small, but they wouldn't be my first choice.

    Grab a copy of the carrier list for Volta and see if anyone will do you a cheap wavelength. You just need to make sure that it's separate from whoever AI are using.

    There's always Level(3) if you get really desperate.

    RE LINX, - I was already thinking about doing this.
    Leave the two Lon1 and Lon2 via Connexions partner and then add 2 more direct ports one to each LON1 and LON2 - downside to that is i then need to setup double the peering sessions?
    Yeah, you'll need to set up two lots of peering sessions, which is an absolute nightmare given how unresponsive pretty much everyone seems to be

    We're still chasing people about adding sessions to LONAP from when we joined last year - and that's people who we already peer with at LINX!

    We had an absolute nightmare with them in both THN and MA1 from cross connects right through to the BGP sessions and prefix filters.
    We had GTT provisioned in THN recently. Took them less than a week to turn up. Link went live as the cross connect was handed over. The best sales experience, less than 2h to agree the deal. Delivery in less than a week, correctly. The quickest A to Z process with a carrier to date and we work with Level3, NTT, GTT, Cogent and Telia, as well as Zayo for DF.

    You mean they actually plugged your cross connect in (and to the right place) and everything? :O

    Might have been lucky :-).

    On that note, patching was requested by me on their demarks, carried out by Telehouse and TH was advised to expect link up once patched which could mean they fixed it without tellimg me if there were issues ;-).

    We have had good provisioning with GTT and Telia. It was a while ago but I remember being impressed.

    Although turns out GTT in Meridian Gate is just some EUN dark to Sov, so when Sov lost power our session went down and their engineers couldn't figure out why.

    We also had a month of continual BGP flaps which was blamed on different EUN/TCG engineers stepping on fibre, messing up splicing etc.

    Apart from that almost 3 years flawless service from GTT. In terms of Telia, we have been live with them for a year in THE and never needed to contact their NOC.

    So far I would recommend both (just don't pick up GTT in a satellite site!)
