so what does this mean

I was thinking of signing up with Giganews for a newsgroups service and pressed the buton for a quick traceroute to test it out. I got the trace below which shows more that a passing link with Tiscali's network. Are PN lining upfor being taken over? :-)

Not at all.

That is simply peering or transit provision in a similar manner to level3, linx and other peers and carries no other significance whatsoever.

That's actually a good route - I'm getting 11 hops to that server. As above Plusnet must just have a peering arrangement with Tiscali by the looks of things.
