New Internet Connection

For a few years now I’ve been trying to get a metro-ethernet connection at school for our internet access. This year we finally managed it. We were using Time Warner’s highest bandwidth package, 50/5Mbps Wideband, but it just wasn’t enough. Their DOCSIS connections are still best-effort with no service-level agreements and that wasn’t quite good enough either.

We ended up signing a contract with Fibertech Networks for a 30/30Mbps metro-ethernet connection over fiber. They gave us a /27 block of IPv4 addresses and a /48 block of IPv6 addresses. I’ve been very happy with the whole process so far. The fiber was pulled on time (and I got to watch them do it) and the service was turned up right on schedule. There were no IP address SNAFUs like the last time with TWC and so far it’s working just as it should.
