Re: [AB] Telus routing Edmonton-Seattle traffic through Chicago

said by rustydusty:

Umm, nlayer and Internap are high end backbone providers, not low at all. If anything, XO is the cheaper end of any of them. I've had awesome luck with Internap.

If you read carefully, all i said was that the bandwidth was cheap, compared to TELUS and probably most other telcos. I wasn't knocking the companys.

Those providers provide cheaper rates because they're providing service to (mostly) wholesale customers in major metro areas as opposed to customers of Telus more often being in areas with no or little competition so they're gouged on pricing. But the same holds true for customers of the other incumbent carriers in Canada. Even with those providers if you're outside of a major metro area the pricing can be pretty high.
