    They should have quoted LEB. I think there was more talk about BurstNET here than on VPSBoard. Anyway, going back to the issue -- what's happening there at Burst?

    Have you seen the amount of people filing against BurstNet? It's a huge list, and I smell more lawsuits coming.

    that's the American way, am sure Americans have sued companies for getting FAT and stupid lawsuits like that. just an abusive of the legal system.

    You are likely not looking at the other forum. that article is even direct linking from vpsboard

  • In an email message to the WHIR, BurstNET president and CEO JW Ray notes this court document was “misfiled” and not meant for BurstNET US but rather BurstNET INT., a separate London company sold in 2013.

    So, how do they fall so quickly after VD drama and doing something they accuse other did

    As I said, 2014 is an interesting year. It will get better as it draws to a close.

    Many people think the overhead of the new building was killing them. Maby the new CEO decided its time to change things so he would get his money back.

    "It will get better"

    So that does the "it" referring to?

    America has two legal systems - Criminal law and Civil law. Civil law deals with disputes between two entities. In essence the Civil court is nothing other than a mediator between two parties. This ultimately allows for common ground and a method towards dispute resolution. You refer to the Civil law.

    That said, given that the court system is for the people, and whose power is derived from those persons - why should persons not use the court when they feel wronged and want a fair resolution?

    No matter how petty we feel a certain issue is the people should not deny the privileges and opinions of other.

    Fair or a quick buck?

    Breaking more BurstNET news, there are some new updates. Looks like they were likely evicted from their Dunmore DC as new legal documents show.

    In short, on 12/18/13 the manager of the facility who Burst rents from filed the formal complaint for non-payment and this 'sudden move' was so sudden for a reason... because they were likely being evicted. October 9th, 2013 was their first notice to evict. November 8th, another notice... Is there any honesty in this god-forsaken industry? I'm thinking not.

    Figured I'd share the news here since it's relevant in the low-end too.

    I doubt that anyone feels sorry for them, the least of which are other DCs/service providers. I'm sure their customers can be absorbed by the competition in no time.

    said: Is there any honesty in this god-forsaken industry?

    Most solid operations have straight forward deals, no shady marketing and reasonable prices without promising the impossible. Yes, there are plenty of honest places where you can get a server from and not be afraid that it'll be gone tomorrow. And then again there are plenty of overpriced places that claim to be better than the competition, when in fact they're not. Do your homework before you lease/colo.

  • I feel bad for all the dedicated and cool customers. Relocating will be a pain....

  • So, I was right, this is not a sound tactical business move, it does have other reasons.

  • SaikuSaiku Member

    Is this why they were suing VolumeDrive? So they can get the money and pay their own bill?

  • I doubt there is any money left after you pay lawyers, even if you win. You must be a big corporation with big pockets to afford litigation, it is used as a weapon against competition, not really as an instrument to enforce contracts or get justice.

  • Quite sad to see such a long lasting provider finally got themselves into trouble because their once "budget" service is no longer "budget" and their "premium" service are not quite "premium" either.

  • Well it looks like this could be the permanent death of BurstNET once all the legal fees/money is collected. Either that or a 'reorganization'.

    Random question but where is your new location? :) I gather it is near NY but I don't believe you mentioned the DC in the announcement.

    Other way around, according to VD.

    Latest reports seem to be that there is extreme packet loss in Dunmore, possibly Burst had some of their capacity suspended by their carriers and the network is now fully saturated?

    I have had a eggdrop there for a few years. Has been down for over 48 hours now, I tried to submit a ticket but their site is down as well.

  • SplitIceSplitIce Member, Provider

    As a long term (3 years+) customer of BurstNet I can say they have gone down hill over the past 1 - 2 years.

    NC aside their LA location still remains rock solid (99.99% uptime over 6 months). Must have some big client there.
