It Appears that F2S Are running stuff from their base now, not from LINX, eg :

server0039.freedom2surf.net (194.106.33.50) is located in London, England (country), United Kingdom - Obviously LINX

server0054.freedom2surf.net (194.106.55.54) is located in St Albans, Hertfordshire (county), England (country), United Kingdom. - Where they are based

Now, they surely don't have their own data centre do they now?, or are they just putting stuff on ADSL connections?

VERY STRANGE!

I already knew that, I'm just saying, that server0053 is located in St Albans, not in London from the test I carried out, all other servers come up as being at LINX.

I guess they want the server to hand in case of problems rather than having to get into london to sort any major hickups out....
I bet they arn't running on a 512 adsl connection though Embarassed
