Dear peers and collegues,

XS4ALL/AS3265 is leaving all exchanges and shutting down all peerings.
What is left of AS3265 will be connected solely through KPN/AS1136.

We stopped announcing our prefixes and accepting your prefixes last week. Please remove peering sessions with the following IP addresses from your routers:

We will shut down connections to the AMS-IX peering lan on Monday, July 4th.

XS4ALL has been a member of the AMS-IX community for more than 25 years.
Thank you all for peering all these years. Unfortunately, it seems that all good things must come to an end.

So long, and thanks for all the bits.

Miquel van Smoorenburg
