Re: genuity - any good?
Registering is not "bad", its just not beneficial. Given that the routes I want to announce are within my assigned range, why is it a good thing to register them? If the transit provider always add entries when I ask for them, it seems to be very little benefit.. This is the case of transit so I am a customer paying money for a service. I started this subthread because I felt others would want to know about this. I made the mistake of buying transit service without asking about their BGP policies. I was hoping to help by sharing my experience.
