"With our growing use of the Internet, being able to peer directly with the likes of Netflix, Akamai, Microsoft and Apple on the Boston Internet Exchange has been huge for us. For a flat access fee for a 10 gigabit pipe, we avoided having to double our Internet bandwidth."

Read the case study


Get redundancy by default. Customers are provisioned two ports across diverse endpoints from the very start, without having to pay for a second interface. This enables ease of maintenance and protection against service outages.

Save on port density, manage fewer circuits.

With consolidated cloud provider access you can access any number of cloud providers over the same two ports. Instead of turning up a unique port for every distinct provider access, all services are delivered over the same redundant pair.

Direct, switched transport to major regions for cloud providers.

We provide layer 2 transport directly to the home regions of major cloud providers without traversing needless additional hops.

As this is a switched product offering and not a routed one, you can own your own LOAs and get that connectivity transported directly to your equipment here in Boston or Lowell without the unreliability of or reliance upon oversubscribed virtual interfaces. Your peering relationships are just one hop away.

Reliable inbound and outbound Internet access delivered over diverse, redundant hardware.

Receive ‘blended bandwidth’ Direct Internet Access with inbound BGP redundancy via public IP blocks advertised to diverse Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

We peer with no less than four distinct providers, pulling down full Internet routing tables from each to make the best routing decisions for our customers. We offer the ability to utilize our public IP space, advertised to each ISP via BGP, for inbound reliability, with prefixes delivered directly to the Markley boundary.
