ACSI policy and performance impressesions requested
Has anyone here dealt with ACSI? They call themselves a "backbone" provider. We have had no end of trouble getting address space from them (They refuse to give us a /24 (yes, a /24) without significant documentation.) When I asked about them delegating reverse DNS to us, they said "no". They want to keep the delegation and do zone transfers from us. Are these common policies with ACSI (or other backbone providers), or are they just trying to be annoying? My only experience with these things has been SprinkLink. They delegate reverse DNS to us, no problem. We have never had problems getting address space from them (granted we are not asking for /19's) Also, does anyone have any experience with the performance of their network? I was trying to test our connection to them and it was horribly, horribly slow. Accessing www.yahoo.com, for example, took nearly 5 mins for the page to load. Accessing the same page via our SprintLink connection took all of 5 seconds. I suspect it was something on our network, but I wanted to get the impressions of other people regarding their performance. -- Eric Wieling (firstname.lastname@example.org), Corporate Communications Technology Sales: 504-585-7303 (email@example.com), Support: 504-525-5449 (firstname.lastname@example.org) I don't bother to set my alarm clock anymore. Someone always pages me before I need to wake up anyway.
