Choose the service that’s right for you
Colt has a broad portfolio of Ethernet services with transparent layer 2 connectivity delivered on industry- standard Ethernet interfaces.
Our services allow you to connect your sites securely, cost-effectively and effortlessly, across metro, national and international locations
Ethernet Line: Point to Point
This plug-and-play service gives you a simple, point- to-point connection between two sites. It offers higher network speeds and a wide choice of bandwidths, which can be upgraded easily.
Ethernet Hub & Spoke: Point to Multipoint
This service aggregates traffic from multiple sites onto a single Hub interface at a central location. The service is a cost effective and manageable way of connecting a larger number of sites to a head office, data centre or carrier PoP.
Ethernet VPN: Any to Any
