It's been over two weeks since I've wanted to get Allstream/Zayo to allow me to announce my /24 and /43. They haven't been communicative and have dropped the ball, all other upstreams (Bell, Rogers, HE, Cogent) have been more than receptive and responded promptly.

My question is, why does it take so long to have something so simple (filter being updated) to happen? If big name transit providers and ISPs can update their prefixes within a reasonable time (I believe longest was a few days), then you should be able to do it within a reasonable timeframe too.

All in all, I'm disappointed that Allstream/Zayo cannot update their filters in a timely manner. As of the time of writing this post, they have yet to update their filters.
