Seeing more and more hydrogen green energy reporting.... Saudi Arabia’s Plan to Rule the $700 Billion Hydrogen Marketv - planning to build a $5 billion plant to make green fuel for export and lessen the country’s dependence on petrodollars.

Thanks,, for being guinea-pig and testing our user-controlled LNS session steering support — we think it's a nice extra bit of functionality for customers using FTTx as backhaul links.

The ever-helpful is pictured here plugging in both our London NNIs. It's time to push some packets to ADSLs, FTTCs, GFasts, and FTTPs up and down the country!

Government wants to build "...a trusted digital identity system for the UK" ...."Digital identities are not ID cards. We are not mandating how the market will develop digital identities" Nothing to worry about here then.

Interesting take on Electric Cars - "To deal with an expensive, dangerous, extremely resource-intensive machine that has helped bring about the destruction of the planet, let’s all buy this new version, which runs on a different fuel."

Our first FTTP1000 link for a customer alt-net's backhaul came into session a few minutes ago. Great start to the weekend!

Control Panel - In praise of dials, toggles, buttons, and bulbs. Now here's a rabbit hole to get lost down... via

Check out our deep dive blog post - "High Availability L2TP LNS Steering with FreeRADIUS and ExaBGP" featuring specification, technical design, and implementation details of our L2TP RADIUS tunnel-steering configuration for wholesale XDSL/FTTP services.

Given how Starlink has control of the whole stack, it's amazing they're not deploying DNS64/NAT64 using 464XLAT. Plenty of mobile carriers in Europe have been using this as a huge legacy address space saver.


I take Starlink being all IPv4 CGNAT as validating my minimal viable product reasoning.


Cold call to the office: "can we speak to your finance team? someone at your org has been browsing our website's IFRS16 pages and I wanted to follow up…"

Yes, we're an ISP…

When the "C" in "CRM and Sales Leads Analytics" stands for "creepy-pasta" and "clueless".

For many years we have shunned

Our ever-worsening perception of how they treat small registrars: disenfranchise via voting system, ignore by disbanding engagement channels, belittle grassroots campaigns.

Hope to join soon… after takes the trash out.

Interesting - favicons potential as stealth trackers "The complexity and feature-rich nature of modern browsers often lead to the deployment of seemingly innocuous functionality that can be readily abused by adversaries,”

Never seen anything like it, in all our years of working in datacentres.


Paint me like one of your French moose!

To whoever was last in this rack in Telehouse TFM23: it might be time to do the right thing and own up! We know exactly when it happened from when that MikroTik's PSU1 failed, and a server lower in the rack suffered a bent CPU heatsink.


We're delivering white label ISP services to a development of 61 flats in Bolton - 1Gbit circuit providing 100mb symmetric connectivity to each flat with faster packages available

Interesting distributed file system development in Brave browser development IPFS

We were recently interviewed by Network Collective for their podcast - we covered a lot of ground: moving from Mikrotik to VyOS; using Netbox as a single source of truth; our open source project 'Halophile Router' - mixing Saltstack, Netbox and VyOS; and much more.
