Our Broadband Solutions initiative helps members lower broadband access costs, improve capacity, redundancy and quality along with other key elements associated with broadband services. We also develop strategic partnerships with value-added service providers to give our members access to best-in-class consumer products such as premium Wi-Fi.
Operators, carriers and service providers benefit from scale economics with NCTC’s large member base.
Our members-only agreements with selected carrier partners provide significant savings on IP transit costs for operators of any size and location.
Cogent is a multinational Tier 1 Internet Service Provider consistently ranked as one of the top five networks in the world.
