Check out this post of the Timico website as to why adjacency matters. If you don’t know what I’m taking about you will learn something:)

Impressive to see Timico coming in at 10th, I was wondering if the full top 50 or so is public and if so where is it published?

Great post Tref

Reminds me of setting up Planet Online in the mid nineties when BT put up a protest against a unheard of business-to-business internet company having he audacity to apply for peering agreements at LINX.

You are completely right that it is a world-wide community of dedicated techies that are not often thanked for creating and maintaining global network – and all based on good will!

Thanks Phil. It’s on the Hurricane Electric website somewhere.

Good post Tref, indeed.

My old sig file used to be “The internet is a global connection of single points of failure.” Ironically I made that up after a visit to Planet Online in the Whitehouse, Leeds :-)

Unsung heroes Network engineers.
