My local is Sky UK (full, SD) in Newcs 1.66. I also have most major packages on hop1 for re-share.
Exchanging C lines is sufficient and my peers don't need to have Newcs. The card looks one hop further away but its performance is unaffected.
I only have 25 peers to prevent freezing.
I'm currently only looking for C+ Denmark and Finland. Please PM me with an active C line if you can offer either of these packages. Your F line should enable re-share by at least one hop.
