I am so glad Kho is on our side. For some value of “our”.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Kho has re-scanned GRX since contacting the providers, and it’s a bit better now. A bit.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

And the best bit is that GRX carries device and user ID and billing data. EXCELLENT.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Also, many of the GRX routers are exposed to the internet, 15 out of 25 providers globally. Some expose GRX’s BGP too! Hurrah!

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Remember, these are the DNS servers on the GRX network, which isn’t even meant to be exposed to the internet.
