Symetrix is excited that today is the day we have waited literally months for. We are getting a fiber-optic based Metro Ethernet connection. It means over 3 times faster Internet speeds from our office. And lays the foundation that as we grow we can more easily increase the speeds.
The changeover is scheduled for 3:30 PM Eastern today (October 11th). This was the latest time slot that our ISP would offer. If all goes well, this outage will only last 10 minutes or less. The techs are scheduled to arrive at 3:30 PM, but would expect the actual cut-over to occur sometime closer to 4PM.
This will affect all hosted services such as Email, Peer-Link, Web Hosting, FTP, etc.
You can also monitor this page, http://www.symetrixnet.com/service-alerts.html, and we will post any change in status there. This web page is hosted on different servers and Internet provider, and will be unaffected by this outage.
Thank you for your patience as we seek to improve our infrastructure to better serve you.
