NTT transit

Post by localhost » Sat Feb 25, 2012 10:40 pm

Is there any particular reason why Exetel doesn't announce NTT inbound? It seems bizarre that there is 1.25gbps of NTT transit (as per the diagram a while ago) and yet there is no traffic heading Exetel's way via NTT. It's coming in via Verizon, which has a much lower portspeed of 850mbps in NSW.

And speaking of networks, is Exetel intending to expand its network to places like west coast US and start buying transit from providers over there, or is there some different plan?

I can't really answer the first question, but our network team is very apt at what they do, so there would be a reason for how it is setup.

In terms of your second question, why would Exetel buy capacity on Southern Cross, when bandwidth prices fall by 50% per year? Allowing Exetel to instead buy capacity through three of the worlds largest network providers Singtel/Optus, NTT, and Verizon, providing capacity on the four major cable systems out of the East coast of Australia (Southern Cross Cable, Australia-Japan Cable, Telstra's Endeavour, and Pipe Pacific Cable 1). Plus capacity for our WA customers on Sea-Me-We 3.
