Exabytes vs. Smarthost.net Denver Routing within same datacenter is different
I was looking at SmartHost Denver and Exabytes comparing the two providers, both located at Handy Networks Denver data center. Exabytes provides the test IP: 18.104.22.168. I also compared SmartHost's Denver test IP of 22.214.171.124. For some reason, despite both being located in the same data center, Exabytes has superior routing to most of our clients and lower latencies. I was wondering if anyone could shed any light on why this might be? Is it carrier related? How are these things usually figured out to make the right decision of what host to go with?
