We will be in contact with most customers during the next week. We are
working hard to continue to provide services to all customers in those
facilities via alternate infrastructure. Whilst we are fully entitled
as a carrier to do so, people should not underestimate the level of
obfuscation we continue to encounter.
If you are affected then I would suggest:
- move locations (we are happy to provide telehousing for free for 6
months (24 month contract) at our Global Switch site with some limited
capacity in Melbourne and Brisbane)
- speak to your account rep at AAPT
- ring us to discuss alternate connectivity possibilities
I understand that pulling out of a datacentre has some significant cost
implications, however leaving infrastructure in a non-carrier neutral
location is generally worse news in the long term...
PS: There are AAPT people on this list.

I presume this is not news to those who use Pipe services in an
AAPT datacentre, so I want to put the question out there....
What are people going to do about it? I mean, other fibre
carriers to get to Pipe? Move to another DC? Etc etc
I am involved with half a dozen ISPs located in AAPT who use
Pipe for a variety of services, and I am wondering what to advise them.
