THN not LHC

The power problems were in one suite on the ground floor of Telehouse North, not the London Hosting Centre.

Unhappy

Equifax

This took out Equifax's credit referencing services as well as killing ISDN equipment at the BT exchange!

Lucky we believe in backup systems, even if IBM don't ;-)

Re: "155MB central from BT costs £316200"

The BT central connection is the connection from the BT Colossus ATM network to the ISP's network. This is just the handover of traffic from BT to your ISP. The ISP still has to pay for the bandwidth from their network onto the internet, not to mention maintaining their network etc.

It has been mentioned several times by ISPs that the price BT charge for the "central" handoff is ridiculously expensive but Ofcom refuse to do anything about it.
