FORETHOUGHT.net is proud to announce that we have installed a direct dark fiber connection into the Netflix cache located in South Denver, and have turned up a direct network interconnection with Netflix. This connection provides FORETHOUGHT.net customers the shortest path from Netflix to the end user – ensuring the best quality video experience. This investment by FORETHOUGHT.net avoids congested Internet exchange points, reduces delay in transmissions, and reduces the chance for packet loss which causes annoying “rebuffering” interruptions in your Internet video experience. FORETHOUGHT.net is committed to the highest quality Internet connectivity for its customers in Colorado and New Mexico. We achieve this goal by directly interconnecting our customers to content networks, bypassing the public Internet. FORETHOUGHT.net also peers directly with Google, Apple, Microsoft, Yahoo – all on dedicated, high speed fiber optic infrastructure.
Apparently CenturyLink is going to try out implementing bandwidth caps and usage charges for its Internet services. What do you all think of that? https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20160211/09480933576/centurylink-follows-comcasts-lead-to-start-charging-broadband-overage-fees.shtml
