I can confirm that to be the case - well, at least /used/ to be the case.  They have far more equipment now in TransACTs telehousing facility.  I'm not able to recall exactly what they have, but if my memory is serving me at all, they now have numerous appliance-type dvices for proxy/hosting functions and I'm pretty sure I have seen a couple of Cisco's kickin around in there too.

They have definately upped their game since they were first switched on.
