Hosting Announces Network Upgrade Hosting has upgraded it’s network with more than double peering with existing provders.

SmartDC upgraded the AMS-IX connection to 20 gigabit/second. To support the increased traffic we have also added additional 10 gigabit connections between our datacenter SmartDC in Rotterdam, to Amsterdam, to Frankfurt and to London.

Together with our LINX and DE-CIX connections, SmartDC is connected to the largest internet exchanges in the world. SmartDC uses these connections to add more reliable, direct and low latency connections to major cable, DSL and dialup ISPs and content providers.

SmartDC also upgraded the connections to Level3 and Global Crossing to 2x 60 gigabit. Our datacenter SmartDC is connected to the Level3 and Global Crossing backbones providing direct connections to Amsterdam, Paris, London and Brussels.
