IP Transit explained

  • An IP Transit service is where an Internet Service Provider (ISP) allows traffic to cross its network in order to reach a destination. To access all Internet routes, you would need to connect to each autonomous system. Data travelling from the ISP providing the service from the customer is often referred to ‘going upstream’, whereas data going to the customer is ‘going downstream’.

  • We offer Ethernet GIG-E, 10GIG-E, 100GIG-E & 400GIG-E ports.

  • Flat rate: Fixed MRC for the Peak Data Rate (PDR), bursting not available
    Commit plus burst: Fixed MRC for the Committed Data Rate (CDR), burst charge based on P95 usage in excess of the CDR

  • Yes. Colt acquired the European network assets from Lumen and jointly owns AS3356.
