Mailing List

The mailing list is targeted at network and operations engineers in the Pacific Region. It is open to everyone from all walks of life around the world who is interested in ISP operations activities in the Pacific Region.

The mailing list was established to provide a forum for the exchange of technical information and the discussion of specific implementation issues that require cooperation among network service providers. To ensure that the list is a useful forum for discussion of relevant technical issues, participants are asked to respect these guidelines. Failure to do so can lead to posting rights being denied.

To subscribe, use the online form.

Note: You must be a subscriber in order to post a message to the mailing list.


PacNOG is open to alls ISPs and Internet related organisations in the Pacific Island region. As such it has no owners, just a small group of dedicated individuals who look after the mailing list and organise the regular meetings. More on the PacNOG organisation.
