Are you really a cabal?

No. We started calling ourselves a cabal in jest, and the name stuck. We also call ourselves the Oligarchs of Aisle Six, but that’s obviously not true either.

Can I join FCIX?

Sure. See the connect page.

What’s the Monthly Recurring Cost for joining FCIX?

$0/mo for 1x1Gbps, double that for anything faster.

Don’t worry; we take our level of service at these prices very seriously, and will always make sure to refund port fees for any outages suffered on the FCIX.

How do you pronounce FCIX?

It isn’t polite.

Can I get a VPN tunnel into FCIX?


Do you support BCP214?

Yes! Despite being a cabal, we take blackholing of traffic very seriously, so BGP sessions are forced down and traffic drained before ports are taken offline for service.

Do the route servers implement filtering?

Yes! Our route servers support IRR filtering and community-based redistribution filtering. For more information on IRR filtering, see our whitepaper on a quickstart to IRR. For more information on what communities our route servers support, see the route server policy page.
