Usenet there is only one. Email servers again just the one as it load balances both before and after migration. The others not sure about, I would expect that the others are just a front end load balancer with multiple servers behind them.

Just to clarify, what I'm after is a list of Virgin media servers; I was giving examples of the ones that I knew, not ones I wanted alternatives for (VM don't have any redundant/secondary servers for any of their stuff AFAIK).

Can you list the type of servers you need please?

Edit: Gah! %$£&]~#@ thing ate my post after I hit post! Why does that keep happening!?
I can't be assed to type it all in again now, but the gist was:
I'm looking for servers and mirrors in the same vein as the ones I mentioned in my original post, e.g. things like the ntp server, mirror servers like gentoo.virginmedia.com, utility webservers like the one I just found (tools.virginmedia.com)
It's more for casual/historical curiosity, but the gentoo repo mirror has been very handy for instance (Much faster when emerge -upv worldi'ing!)

if you are using BSD, the virgin mirrors are effectively useless.
I tried building my OpenBSD desktop from virgin mirrors and it simply falls over, this is because some short termist idea of putting a banner on every transaction. Very, very poor.
I've had to use non virgin servers which is a shame as this would same lots of external ISP traffic.
If you are by chance trying to build a OpenBSD or BSD box using ports, then this command will help
