Top three mobile application threats

The ISP peering cooperative LONAP has disconnected one of its members, Wave Rider, over an invoice dispute.

LONAP took the action yesterday, and warned other members to shut down peering with the firm, which describes itself as "one of the longest established internet providers in the Midlands", to avoid network problems.

The cooperative's chairman Sebastien Lahtinen declined to comment on the nature of the dispute. Attempts to resolve it had been unsuccessful, he said.

A spokesman for Wave Rider, identifying himself only as Andy, denied industry speculation that the firm had hit financial difficulties. "Talks with LONAP are ongoing," he said.

Lahtinen however said: "We haven't spoken to them today. We'd like to hear from them."

Peering cooperatives such as LONAP allow ISPs to make savings on upstream bandwidth charges by directly connecting their networks. ®
