|Fiber Service - True Fiber and "Fiber" Service|
ACD.net has been building, installing and providing fiber service for many years now. Our customers include fortune 500 companies, universities, hospitals, associations, and small & medium businesses.
True Fiber vs. services that are Fiber Aggregated
Some providers today are advertising “Fiber Service”, “Riding on our Fiber Network”. Understanding what you are buying is important. A service that is aggregated to a fiber network, rather than a direct fiber-optic connection, is a different product. Knowing how you are connected is important. A true fiber line is generally at gigabit (1000mb/s) speeds. When some providers are advertising “Fiber Service” what they are actually providing over the last mile may be one of the many varieties of DSL or Digital Subscriber Line, Cable Modem, or T1 and T3 lines that all end up connecting to a “Fiber” backbone network. This is not the same as getting a direct fiber build. Fiber aggregation service is not “True Fiber.” How do you tell if you are buying true fiber?
Fiber is amazing stuff!
|ACD.net Announces Upgrade to our Mail Servers|
You may have noticed a great reduction in the amount of spam your recieving. Our network engineers have been working hard continuing to upgrade our mail servers with one of the most advanced Spam filters on the market today. It continually adapts itself to detect spam.
For the most part it does a great job, but occasionally a spam slips through. Currently, if the system determines is unsure that an email is spam but it has some markings of spam it will add a "[SPAM]" to the subject line. As we all tell the system that the email is either spam or not, the system adapts and learns, it will stop delivering the messages marked as spam.
When you receive a spam, you have a choice to either just delete it and move on, or report it to the spam filter to help improve its performance. To report the spam select the message in your inbox, right-click and select "Forward as attachment." (If your email software doesn't support "Forward as attachment" simply forward the email.) Address it to firstname.lastname@example.org and click send. You've done your duty and added the evil spam to the spam filter's collection.
Any help from you is much appreciated and will make a better experience for all of us!
Here are some details of how our spam filter works:
We setup several special email addresses that do the following:
