Looks like we are well over a gigabit with BT and BE now, which is quite scary. I expect we will put more on next month and plan is to get even more before the Olympics start, and then see how it goes.
It is amazing how this has grown, from our first 2Mb/s BT link in Reading, the 8Mb/s and 34Mb/s BT Centrals. It seems only yesterday we had two 155Mb/s BT Central links, and now look at us!
I am pleased to say the FireBricks are scaling nicely to meet the challenge, and it is nice to see more and more small ISPs taking them on instead of the established alternatives. I should we worried, as it means A&A losing our edge, but to be honest, the more ISPs that can keep BT in line with our constant quality monitoring, the better. It is better for our customers overall, and that is what matters.
A&A would not be where it is today without FireBrick!
