For those not in the know yet : Yesterday, we received news that the deal with Oakley didn't go through. Everything was ok except for one thing : the banks demanded Oakley to pay 45 million euro to keep the Ebone network running for another couple of weeks while Oakley was prepared to only give 25 million.

At around 20:00 last evening, the last people from the NOC left the building and today a few people have gotten a contract to shut down the Ebone network.

I don't know how long this messageboard will remain up as it's hosted on a PC in the NOC, but I just wanted to tell people this personally before all the newssites start spreading it around.

I would like to thank everyone that has supported us over the last couple of weeks on behalf of all my colleagues who've been keeping everything running, hoping on a miracle : you were great.

To my colleagues : Thanks for the great time I had working at Ebone and I hope everything turns out ok for you and that we may meet in the future in another company. It's been great, but now the show is over and the curtain falls over one of the best companies I've ever worked for.

Speed aka Stephan Persoons, ex-Ebone Shift Manager, signing off.

It's very vey sad, and I hope you all get to move to bigger and better things.  Thanks for your efforts over the whole time we were your customer, and especially during the last month.  You deserved better.

This is really a sad day...
To my colleagues: it really was a pleasure to work with you. I've never seen such a loyalty & professionalism jobwise in any other company; I consider it as a privilege to have worked with you all.

To our customers: it was a pleasure to work for you as well; unfortunately we couldn't save our (and your) network... Thanks for all the support during the past weeks; something we couldn't dream of when all this started.

So long & really take care!

Thanks for your efforts. Now, we have to think about bankrupt, too. But for EBONE colocation customers in Germany we have a littel rescue plan.
