Reach networks with a restrictive peering policy

Having a direct connection to a network the size of Comcast’s gives us a distinct advantage over other cloud providers.

With DE-CIX DirectROUTES, you can get direct access to high-quality networks with a restrictive peering policy. Even with small bandwidth requirements, we can offer you direct access to those networks, just via an additional VLAN. No additional contract negotiations are required, and we offer you flexible bandwidth and cancellation terms. 

Get access to Comcast, America’s largest Cable TV and Internet service provider

The first network available via DE-CIX DirectROUTES is Comcast, America’s largest Cable TV and Internet service provider, which serves more residential broadband subscribers than any other US provider. Comcast don't peer at Internet Exchanges, making this an ideal opportunity to get direct access into Comcast's AS7922 eyeball network.

Reach networks just via an additional VLAN on your access

At Pixel factory we were experiencing significant latency swings and packet loss to Comcast via our multiple transit providers during different days or time of day. (…) Solving this nagging problem was a couple of clicks and the magic of the DE-CIX solution. This way we streamlined our hardware requirements, reduced cross connects and port count, and provided better class of connectivity to our clients.
