SoftLayer continuously analyses and evaluates the way in we deliver services to our customers in order to bring the best possible combination of performance and price in the market. In particular we have continued evaluating the connectivity services we provide from our data centers in Tokyo, Singapore, and Hong Kong into mainland China through Chinese providers and have continued to see that this service does not provide a good cost-benefit proposition for our customers given the current cost point of these connections. We have elected to discontinue the use of these direct circuits into mainland China effective immediately. We have begun moving traffic off these links from our Hong Kong, Singapore, and Tokyo locations which may result in some customers in those locations noticing increased latency due to the traffic shift away from the direct circuits into circuits provided by other local vendors in region. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and / or your customers.
