Connect globally in a single hop

The more networks that data has to pass through to reach its destination, the more latency is incurred, because each hop to another network takes time to process and route properly. Data is also subjected to bandwidth throttling, where networks intentionally slow traffic and minimize bandwidth to regulate congestion.

IP Transit is a service where ISPs allow traffic to travel through their network to its final destination. Tier 1 networks, such as Cogent, AT&T, Verizon and Lumen, freely peer with one another to provide one-hop latency. The combined reach of these global Tier 1 networks allows for the fastest routing possible and can route requests to anywhere on the Internet.
