PacketFabric Costs

PacketFabric costs vary depending on metro/long-haul connections and your service terms.

  • Metro connections fall within a metro market. For example, a connection between a source port in NYC5 to an interconnect located in NYC1.

  • Long-haul connections can connect to other markets. For example, a connection between a source port in ATL2 to an interconnect located in NYC1.

Total Monthly Costs - Dedicated

The following don't include the initial NRC and cross-connect costs. The Google price reflects the egress traffic examples from above.

The low end in the examples below reflects 36-months contracts for all services. However, service terms can be selectively applied. For example, you can have one source port on a 24-month contract, another on a month-to-month contract, and a dedicated cloud connection on a 24-month contract.
