Routing from Manchester - good!

[link to this post]
So I went live with Hyperoptic here in Manchester about two months ago. I noticed at first that almost all routes I bothered checking were via Cogent, so routed via their network from Manchester to London and onward from there.

I've since noticed that Hyperoptic are using the peering point IX Manchester a lot more: Akamai, BBC and Janet (so for instance) are served via this route - pretty damn quick! For the first time in as long as I can remember, if I ping the university my data isn't going down to London via BT Wholesale (or Be*'s network before I was on BTW), but it's going near enough direct; pings of 2.8msec to!

I'm certainly impressed smile
