Level3 Reliable Enough As ONLY Carrier

Sep 14, 2009

We are switching from a reseller that blends several carriers to Level3, to reduce our b/w costs (by a factor of 3x). We are driving upwards of 300Mbps currently.

Is Level3 reliable enough in terms of uptime to be our *only* carrier?

We are running a real-time always-on service with long-lived TCP connections, so frequent disconnections would be problematic. A single downtime of a couple of minutes per month would not be too bad on the other hand.

Switching our stuff to Level3 is a lot of work as it is.

Getting a second provider for the failover, which involves setting up a CISCO edge router with BGP, getting an AS number from ARIN, will make this task too big at this point. Is L3 reliable enough on its own to spare this hassle of a second ISP?

Comcast Carrier

Sep 24, 2009

We're having a meeting today with Comcast about letting them move fiber into our facility. Please do not post experiences with Comcast CABLE. I want to know your experience as other datacenters and hosts with Comcast Fiber. What do you know about their fiber and what is your experience with them in both standalone and BGP?

Reliability, latency, peering quality, etc. We are in the Houston area, where so far I have heard they are pretty good with most I have talked to, and a few negatives. At what level would you use their connection?

Carrier Selection

Oct 1, 2009

As we have been extending our private peering relationships across the US and Europe we are also looking to consolidate our carriers to simply Tier 1 and/or near Tier 1 providers. One of these providers will certainly be Level(3), but we are still not fully decided on other carriers.

Now, what I am looking for here is, which network combination would most impress you as a customer/potential customer. I am not looking for price based analysis or analysis of dealing with a company's billing or support departments. I already have the data I need for those determinations. The point of this poll is solely to get end-user input as to overall network performance/reliability and how the network would compliment the existing carrier, Level(3). Please elaborate as to your decision in a post to the thread.

Note: We have already done significant research, this poll is simply to help confirm research we have already done or to bring about items/issues we may have overlooked or not considered. Figured we'd take advantage of the knowledge of this community before making a final decision.

East Coast Carrier Neutral Facilities

Oct 9, 2007

The company I'm currently working for is looking at colo space on the East Coast. I already have a quote from Equinix for their Ashburn DC4 - but I'm trying to do some due diligence and shop around a bit.

We're looking at 5 cabinet cages, and we have moderately high power requirements. The Equinix DC4 gives us 32kVA total availability across the 5 cabs.

Can anyone recommend other comparable facilities on the East Coast, or recommend Equinix resellers?

Rough Idea Of Pricing In A Carrier-neutral NYC Facility

Oct 8, 2007

telling me about your offerings, or trying to convince me about out of area datacenters because of the risk of terrorism, cost, or alien invasion, I'm not seriously shopping around, just doing a bit of initial research.

With that disclaimer, what's a rough expectation of pricing for a NYC, carrier neutral datacenter for 1 cabinet with 60 amps of 110v? Preferrably somewhere that Internap is available.

UCEPROTECT-Level3

Aug 7, 2008

Just wondering what problems a listing here will cause for emails
[url]and it is Level 3.

rejected emails to some or all other networks?

This is for a Data Center's IP ranges, they have advised the cause was 2 of their customers with 6 servers which all contained multiple IP classes on each server caused this and are saying to wait 7 days before the listings will clear.

I do not believe they will pay the express removal, not sure if they even knew about the listing until it was pointed out to them.

Details from site..

What means listed at UCEPROTECT-Level 3?

GAME OVER. We and our users have seen enough spam and heared all possible excusions why some lazy providers think to be not responsible for what their customers are doing.

We are not just another blacklist. We really know better. Massive spam is always a problem tolerated by the provider.

Your abuser / user ratio is exorbitant high. We expect some minimum standards from soneone claiming to be a professional provider.

Due to the facts that you do not reach our standards, we and many of our users have chosen to no longer allow smtp-traffic from all your IP's and ranges. See above what we are willig to tolerate as a maximum by an provider of your size.

In todays Internet it is no longer acceptable to sit down and wait for abuse to happen.

If you want to become an accepted provider with a good reputation, you will have to install preventive measures.

Click here to see what you can do to prevent spam coming from your ranges.

If you think it is not your job to prevent your IP's flooding the world with spams, we hope that you and your users will enjoy your Intranet.

How can our total ip-space be removed from UCEPROTECT-Level 3?

You can not expect to get a free ride because you are the provider. Our standard removal procedures are also valid for you.

After you have fixed the problems, the UCEPROTECT-Level 3 listing will be removed automatically and free of charge as soon as the causal Level 1 listings will expire.

Every IP listed at Level 1 expires 7 days after we have seen the last abusive action coming from it.

If you don't want your users to be affected up till the free expiration, you can optionally Expressdelist, which is charged a total of 250 EURO per ASN.

That is a huge discount compared to our charges for Level 2 or even Level 1 expressdelistings.

It is necessary that problems are fixed in first place, otherwise your complete IP-space might end up in Level 3 again within a short timeframe

Level3 Stamford DC

Mar 27, 2008

Does anyone have any experience in this DC, or are there any resellers who could help me out? We have equipment all over the US, but want something close to our offices for a more robust testing environment. We're only 30 minutes from NYC, but it's a huge hassle and we already have other equipment there.

I've done searches for other DCs in the area, but they don't turn up too much. I'm open to anything in western CT or Westchester county. The only quote I've gotten so far was ridiculous.

Level3 Pricing

May 3, 2007

Does Level3 charge the same price per rack at every one of their datacenters, or is it dependent on the location? For example, how much would a rack in the Houston datacenter cost compared to the Dallas datacenter? Please no sales people contact me I am just asking to do some research.

Level3 Discard Bgp Community

Jan 13, 2008

Has anyone had issues with Level3 honoring their discard community recently (3556:9999)? We had to null 2 IPs earlier in the week. The first one they didn't pick up the route when advertised via BGP (or if they did, it took hours). We ended up having to call and get them to filter it manually. The second IP we were able to null route fine using BGP. Now we have another IP being attacked and it looks like Level3 isn't going to pick up the route and discard traffic.

Level3 Vs Global Crossing Vs (UK)

Feb 19, 2008

We currently take transit from Level3 and Tiscali in addition to peering at LINX in the UK. We reaching capacity on our 100Mbps connection to Level3 which we take through a Reseller. I plan to keep our Tiscali transit as we receive great routes to Europe.

I have received quotes for increasing our Level3 to 1Gbps with 100 Mbps CDR and also switching to Global Crossing direct which are I think are fairly competitive at ~ 12 per Mbps?

Does any one have direct experience with either of these two providers in the UK and can recommend who has the best support/routes etc? Additionally I see a number of other UK providers are using Telia and NTT. Having had no experience with Telia or NTT I am unsure if they are in the same league as Global Crossing and Level3. Also are there any other Tier 1's we should be looking at?

Level3 Vs NTT Verio Vs PCCW

Mar 5, 2008

dedicated server at sentris.com

They offer level3, NTT Verio, and PCCW backbones. I can choose which backbone I want my traffic to go over.

They offer twice as much traffic if I go with PCCW, so it must be the worst provider.

Im thinking of running a gameserver, so I want the lowest latency possible, which provider should I go with?

Level3 Price Increase Jan 1st

Jan 19, 2007

We've been considering getting a cabinet at Level3 in Tampa and the last pricing we got was November 2006. Yesterday I spoke with the rep I'd been dealing with to place the order, and was told that Level3 raised their prices substantially as of January 1st.

The quote we got 2 months ago is now a full 30% higher.

Can anyone confirm whether Level3 really did take a fat increase, or am I being hustled?

Level3 East Coast Providers

Sep 7, 2008

either located in L3 facility or L3 connection.

looking for:

2-4GB memory
2x 160gb drives
3-4TB monthly bandwidth
dual xeon cpus or quad

preferable around $200-$250/mo.

am i asking for too much? everyone seems to only offer 1 or 2TB bandwidth but i'm hovering right around 1.5TB a month at my current location so i need a bit more for growth.

i run a non-profit gaming website and our budget is somewhat tight. we've been in a speakeasy datacenter for over 7 years and the only reason we're moving is because we outgrew the small server we were blessed with for so many years.

There doesn't seem to be a list of folks that resell Level3 anywhere, and doing a GIS doesn't really help, either.

I'm looking for a couple of names of some companies that offer dedicated servers in Level3 facilities? Preferably in the Northeast, but anywhere on the East Coast is probably fine, too.

I know Limestone and TMS are L3 resellers, but they aren't east coast...

Take A Colo Package Or Colo In A Carrier Hotel With Your Own Network

Please give me the difference. Colo in carrier hotel, we can choose our preferred network provider, but should we do that if we cannot have our own tech in datacenter? How about the supporting service from carrier hotel? Just general question, cause I dont address exactly which facility.

And the second would be more expensive? Saying the same number of rack, amount of bandwidth... Who is providing IP addresses then?

Just Want The Most Reliable VPS Available

I'm looking for the most reliable VPS/network I can get my hands on. I'm willing to pay a premium for 99.999 - 100% uptime. I don't want 99.5, that translates into two or three very painful outages a year.

I don't need a managed system, or any control panel. Debian etch is preferred.
