Is there an established method for reporting/getting removed a company with 100% false peeringdb entries?

First, take a look at this:

Now look at these (or use your own BGP table analysis tools):

The claimed prefixes announced, traffic levels and POPs appear to have no correlation with reality in global v4/v6 BGP tables.

It is also noteworthy that I have inquired with a number of persons I know who are active in network engineering in NYC, and nobody has ever encountered this company. is fairly prominently displayed at the bottom of every page that peeringdb displays…

Hi Nanog!

If you stumble across such things, drop us a note at and we will take a look at it.


I see from peering db: 2020-07-01T14:22:01Z
According to the link
AS18894 has not been visible in the global routing table since November 28, 2020
The information displayed is from that time.

Are they causing you or someone issues Eric? Maybe they went out of business? Many businesses don’t worry about peering db entries. Looks like the website has been under constructions since 2020.

Sounds to me like they made a splash, and faltered.

Yeah, I know a couple of people who have thrown massive peeringdb operations up just to make them look big but their routing table analysis looks nothing like what they say they have.

That could be Justin, based on the timeline from domain registration to ARIN Object Creation ( Network and Abuse ) to PeeringDB Contact Update. That doesn’t explain the recent update to Public Peering Info on 2021-03-07T20:35:22 months after the ASN stopped routing any IP space.

The domain name associated with Manhattan Networks Corporation was created on June 2nd, on the same day it was updated, the operator created multiple ARIN objects:

Activity wise, the IP space they were routing were leased from Cogent?
Jul 17th - November 20th: announcing Cogent prefix
Aug 12th - Oct 6th: announcing Cogent prefix
