   It has been a while since I've used it significantly, and it will vary
a lot by POP.

   For me it was down often enough to make it unwise to, for example,
do backups over it. I think I had one of the flakier POPs, though. Each
SiXXS POP is operated separately, so performance can be significantly
different. This is less of an issue with HE, which is why it is more
stable, but they don't do UDP tunnels. Certainly give SiXXS/aiccu a try
and see how it works for you. The software and service are both free.

   Good luck...
