Cogent Communications Expands Network Footprint in vXchnge Data Centers

Bandwidth provider Cogent Communications has extended its network footprint in vXchnge’s data centers across the United States. The carrier-neutral colocation services provider now has a total of nine data centers that benefit from Cogent’s global connectivity.

With this network expansion, businesses in vXchnge’s Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Philadelphia and Secaucus data centers will join those in vXchnge’s Santa Clara, New York City, Jersey City, and Cleveland colocation facilities. All vXchnge’s data center customers in these regions will now be able to tap into Cogent’s Internet access and data transport services.

“vXchnge’s broad geographic footprint enables Cogent to reach more businesses and continue to offer the high quality services, we have committed to providing to customers,” said Dave Schaeffer, CEO at Cogent Communications. “In addition, vXchnge has a strong record of operational resiliency and quality of service, which is required for us to continue to serve our customers as we do.”
