Schnapps post Euro-IX Berlin

Lovely to have you with us

Return from Euro-IX Berlin I don’t know whether it’s just hotel living or the exposure to different cultures but it’s always nice to come home after a trip overseas. For the first part of this week I was at Euro-IX Berlin. It was the usual useful meeting of Internet Exchange Point operators from mostly Europe but […]

The Berlin Conference – Euro-IX Berlin

My name is Harry Palmer – Euro-IX Berlin Sunday was a grey day in Berlin and the stark concrete surroundings of the Olympic Belltower provided an atmospheric background for a short video. The Belltower, incidentally, was the British Rugby Club clubhouse in Berlin. A suitably indestructible place for rugby players to get drunk (and play […]

transit pricing versus peering

Cost of transit versus peering cc @lonap

Transit costs plummeting but not as fast as peering Last time I looked at transit costs I was paying something like 60pence/Mbps, admittedly only for a 1Meg commit. My habit of sharing blog posts on Facebook seems to be attracting an eclectic bunch of ads and this morning I was pushed one from Hurricane Electric […]
