IP stream from ???


[link to this post]
 
Where do Goscomb Technologies get their IP stream MAX and 21CN from,thats assuming they are resellers.

Do they give a good service for a lite user eg 10GB, the price seems OK for a mkt 1 exchange,
assuming someone has tried them LOL

Thanks,
Jon

Though some days it can be like playing the post code lottery, which node will be at peak all day, and which won't.

There are 20 WBC (21CN) nodes and 10 IPSC ones, which are at the same locations as the corresponding WBC ones but separate MSILs.

Entanet use all of them. I have a fuller explanation here, and Enta have an IPSC node loading page.

I was with Goscomb for a period of time, and the line always synced at 8128 and could fully saturate it when I wanted to.

Only reason for leaving them was that I couldn't manage to keep within my bandwidth limits, or I'd still be with them now.

Support is always good, and very helpful.

They use an Entanet L2TP connection (which is quite different from the wholesale service that others take from Enta) - all support and billing is done direct by Goscomb, which as I've said is very good.

It's a 1 month contract, with Free migration, so there's very little to loose.

I don't think it is with Goscomb and the L2TP solution from Enta; I think that all L2TP traffic takes precedence over the network. I know that I switched from ADSL24 ENTAnet connection to Goscomb (migration was done on same day that MAC was issued as it was inter-enta migration).

It was like chalk-and-cheese; yes I know it cost more, but whereby I always had problems with ADSL24 ENTA connection due to being on a busy node, on Goscomb, I had no such issues.
