I say this because it seems the most logical course of action in making World Exchange aware of all the problems and how us, the customers are affected.
Sure, World Exchange know when their network has issues but they may not be completely aware how irritating, inconvenient and downright poor the frequent disconnects and frankly, sub-standard evening internation speeds are to the PAYING customers are.
VFX, HSI/Fusion are not free deals being handed out, we're actually paying money to a company which is claiming to have an excellent service, so I believe we deserve a bit more.
So...if you have a problem with HSI/Fusion, raise a ticket with xnet stating your problem and we could come out better off.

Yeah, that will do it!

Tried that.....they just start ignoring you.  There seems to be an attitude of "trust in our superior knowledge or STFU"

You know it's especially bad when you offer to buy them a $$$$$$ P2P caching server and they don't bat an eyelid.

You don't choose - it hashes the actively shared content and caches based upon whats popular.  This has the side effect of letting the ISP off the hook for the large chunk of copyrighted material that would end up being cached.   Vodafone (previously iHug) already employs a similar caching box.

That just sounds risky for the ISPs who employ that.

No, there are safe harbour provisions for ISPs that protect them legally from users actions and because of the manner in which the caching box works the ISP is protected under these same provisions.
