Qwest And Sprint's Network

May 31, 2007

I would like to hear some input from users that have had experience with Qwest and Sprint's network. How do they compare to the other tier one providers? I know some networks depend on location, so I would like to hear from people that have used them in Texas if possible.

Comcast, Verizon And QWest Peering

May 24, 2008

I find it very interesting that the major ISPs in and around Portland Oregon apparently do not peer with anyone in the region. For low latency you're better off choosing a provider in Seattle or San Jose as traffic always seems to be routed there and back anyways.

Why is this? Is it simply not worth their effort to setup the peering connections because most traffic will be hosted outside the region anyways?

Qwest DSL

Mar 3, 2007

I just switched to Qwest DSL for internet access and I have one problem. I cannot access any sites hosted by ServerWizards on all 5 pcs in my house. Even people who comes to my house with their laptop cannot access my sites hosted with SW. Qwest technical support can't help.

This problem occured three times so far this month

1st time I assigned a dedicated IP on all pcs to make it work
2nd time I contacted Qwest support and rebooted the modem to make it work
3rd time I contacted support again and tried everything but does not work

I have no Firewall other than Windows forewall. No virus to think of. Reboot

troubleshoot this or explain what the problem might be.

Verizon / MCI Pricing

May 20, 2008

Can anyone give me a rough estimate of what I should be expected to pay for the following bandwidth commitments from Verizon:

45Mbps (DS3)
100Mbps (FE)
155Mbps (OC3)
1Gbps (Gig-E)

This location would be a Verizon central office. Anyone know of a good Verizon sales representative or reseller?

Network Providers In Verizon CO's

Jan 22, 2008

If one was interested in becoming a CLEC and hosting their own gear inside a central office, how do they find out what providers are available and on-net in central offices? Is there any database to look at?

I asked my Verizon sales representative and she stated that she couldn't tell me what customers were in their CO for privacy reasons. That is understandable, but how do I find out who is in a CO and who I can cross connect with? You are not forced to buy internet access only from the ILEC (Verizon) are you?

Qwest Texas Network Experiences

Jun 5, 2007

Can anyone comment on how their experience has been with the Qwest network in the Texas region? It seems by looking at their network map that they have many directly links to other cities coming out of Houston which is a surprise to me as everything seems to come from Dallas on other networks.

Can anyone comment on pricing? What can you get a FE or GE commit from Qwest for?

Route From Level 3 To Qwest On The West Coast

Aug 30, 2009

I am looking at getting some Qwest bandwidth at 200 Paul, San Francisco. Not being too familar with Qwest's network and as part of evaluating that decision I did some testing to see how the routes/latency looked from various points on the Internet and from our other data centers. For pretty much all the testing I did from the major tier 1/2 networks, Qwest has great peering in places you would expect resulting is decent routes and low latency.

The strange thing is that the one exception is routes from Level 3. As an example, traffic from various Northern California points on Level 3's network to a test IP on Qwest's network in Sunnyvale all go via Denver to connect to Qwest and then back to the Bay Area. For LA originating traffic, it goves via Dallas. Same thing for Seattle that is going via Denver.

Hard to imagine these two tier 1 providers don't peer at any location on the west coast at all? Is this typical between these two or is there some temporary outage right now? Or is there some peering spat going on between them?

Seems pretty silly for traffic to go 3,000 miles between points that are only 10 miles apart!

Here is an example of the route to a test IP sunnyvale.speedtest.qwest.net (

1 vlan89.csw3.SanJose1.Level3.net ( 0 msec
vlan79.csw2.SanJose1.Level3.net ( 0 msec
vlan99.csw4.SanJose1.Level3.net ( 0 msec
2 ae-62-62.ebr2.SanJose1.Level3.net ( 216 msec
ae-82-82.ebr2.SanJose1.Level3.net ( 4 msec
ae-72-72.ebr2.SanJose1.Level3.net ( 204 msec
3 ae-3.ebr1.Denver1.Level3.net ( 204 msec 200 msec 204 msec
4 ae-11-51.car1.Denver1.Level3.net ( 224 msec
ae-11-55.car1.Denver1.Level3.net ( 212 msec *
5 dvr-brdr-01.inet.qwest.net ( [AS209 {ASN-QWEST}] 24 msec 28 msec 28 msec
6 dvr-core-01.inet.qwest.net ( [AS209 {ASN-QWEST}] 24 msec 24 msec 28 msec
7 * * *
8 svl-svcs-01.inet.qwest.net ( [AS209 {ASN-QWEST}] 28 msec 28 msec 28 msec
9 svl-speedtest-01.inet.qwest.net ( [AS209 {ASN-QWEST}] 28 msec 28 msec 28 msec

Anyone have experiences with using Qwest bandwidth in Northern California they care to share?

Cannot Send Mail From Hosting Account Over Qwest

Apr 21, 2009

For years we have been able to send and receive through our web sites using Qwest and then a few weeks ago it stopped working for sending completely. I checked the usual things like port 25; I changed the outbound mail address to smtp.live.com per their instructions. Nothing. Now that Qwest is MSN it just doesn't work and their offshore "support" is worthless. This happens using Windows XP Pro and Vista.

Rate Limiting On The Switch

Jan 11, 2008

Which brand / model would you recommend for those:

1 - bw limiting on specific port (like 3mbits/sec on port4)

2 - creating vlans by ports (like vlan1 = port1 + port2)

3 - creating vlans by ips (like vlan1 =x.x.x.1 to 8, vlan2 = x.x.x.9 to 27)

4 - managing the switch from GUI

Market Rate For IP Addresses

Nov 14, 2007

I've been collecting quotes from various colo providers for 1 full cabinet in Virginia. I've been surprised at how much power costs these days, but I also understand power is in short supply.

One quote I got raised a question though. For a Class C (non-portable) IP address space, they want $256/month (so I guess that's $1 per IP). Their other pricing seems in line with the other quotes I have received, but no other place wants to charge for IP addresses like that. Is $256/month for a Class C considered normal market rate?

Does that reflect their costs? Are they paying a price per month upstream for IPs?

Slow Upload Rate

Oct 12, 2008

I am hosted with ASmallOrange. I have always had fast uploads but recently that have been rather slow. 1-4kbs but now up to 20kbs. I think it depends on the file type. I am not sure.

This is starting to stress me out because it takes hours to upload 8 or 9 mbs of stuff.

What is a normal upload rate? How do I know if this is a problem with my host or with my connection?

I also upgraded to the lastest version of Cyberduck but I do not have OSX. I still have OS9. Could that be a problem?

When I try uploading a file of stuff it says 2 or 3kbs but when I upload an 11mb file it says 20kbs. It is so strange. I can't find a really good way to tract it. I am just watching the upload as it flickers and shows me a rate but it doesn't always. Deleting files is fast. And downloading normal files from the internet is about 144kbs.

Colo Rate Increases, Gnax . Others

Thanks to rising costs of energy we have received notices from GNAX that they are raising costs of power and colo space. Has anyone else seen similar notices from other colo's already ?

I know we have seen power rates increase the last few months in our homes, we talked about that here in another thread. It was envitable that colo facilities followed suit. How does this affect the other colos and providers?

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Postfix Rate Limiting

Oct 13, 2014

There are several big domains that frequently defer accepting mail from us causing long delays or rejections. Google, AOL, and Yahoo are examples. I'm considering trying the suggestions found in this online posting regarding rate limiting the sending of messages to those domains. In the below URL, please see the section titled "Different policies for different domains"...URL....

Would these changes be safe to make on a CentOS 6.4 server running Plesk 11.0.9 with Postfix 2.8.4? Would any special modifications for Plesk be necessary?

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.
