Telia everywhere, why?

Telia everywhere, why?

edited October 2012 in General

Seeing lots of Telia appearing all over the place in our traceroutes.

Seems to be in the last 3 months.

Is Telia doing some aggressive promotions or something? Providers seem to really mixing Telia into upstreams heavily.

So far, Telia in my experience has been very good and speedy every place we use them.

Anyone have any idea why the big move to Telia lately?

  • Why moan if it is good

  • I am not moaning :)

    Curious if Telia is running crazy deep discounts on commits or what. Know HE and Cogent are notorious for that and why we see them all over the place. Wondering if this is more of the same.

  • They aren't cheap but not expensive either. More level3 pricing vs. he/cogent but can get down to under $10/mbps on a gigE.

    The nice thing about them is their global ip product- same price in any geo. And their network is good, especially to the eu.

    Retired!

  • Surprised at the around $10/mbps level. Was thinking they'd be knocking it way down now or something. Maybe they are.

  • Telia is on par with most other performance tier 1 carriers. They don't have a network as large as Level3 for example, but Telia is still considered a high quality transit network.

    There is no comparison between Cogent/HE and Telia. And Telia is much more expensive.

  • Cuz everyone is starting to find out that Colocrossing is the best and they use it ;-)

  • $10 is for under a 500mbps commit, burstable

    Sub-$10 can be had on higher commits. What Ive noticed is that for those who need to push the bandwidth they will get aggressive on 10ge. Not your cogent/he $0.50-.80/mbps but sub $5 - seems like people have been adding them into the mix more because of this

  • @CVPS_Chris,

    You are a hoot! Big brass balls there fellow.

    Yeah, Colocrossing is good.

    Inquiring minds want to know how tightly wound CVPS and Colocrossing are (mind you I am one of your customers and use Colocrossing via other resellers too).

  • I am best friends with someone that works for Colocrossing. We are all from same town and know each other and have for a long time

  • Boy I tell you @CVPS_Chris, you don't even work for Colocrossing? The rumor mill may have been spreading that mistruth for too long.

    Whatever the secret sauce, you folks are cooking @ CVPS with high octane. Good service, good bandwidth, fast on the tickets. Most stable VPS we've had.

    That's change I can believe in.

  • Well bringing it back on topic ;)

    So far a ton of my routing on different servers have also been through telia.

    Cogent -> ntt.net -> Telia.

  • Mainly also because HE uses Telia.

  • @William, is the HE heavy use of Telia new or recent? Has to be.

    Wonder if that is some sign of weakness/business change for HE?

  • They use it a bit more now, but no sign of anything - just more routes prefer it due to end-user connections in Europe.

  • Seeing way more in the US actually. See some of it in Europe, but have limited servers over there.

    Nah, if anything he.net is expanding/growing. What is annoying is that more and more he traffic is dumped to exchanges w/o regard to geo

    Retired!

  • HE needs to expand. Lots of places where their routing is geographically way out of the way.

    Probably are working around that lingering issue by dumping off to peers.

    I am mixed on both approaches. Cogent rides packets end to end to avoid paying anyone. Often route geographically can be overshoots of destinations. Wished for years Cogent would start piping some into peering exchanges as workaround where needed.

  • @pubcrawler , eh, well, in both cases the price is right :-)

    Retired!
