As one of the world’s largest Internet network service providers, Cogent brings the total number of carriers and communication providers at the DRFortress data center in Hawaii to 23.
DRFortress claims to have the most network options available in Hawaii as a data center colocation provider, allowing clients to connect to any major network, Internet Service Provider (ISP), or content provider on the globe quickly and effortlessly.
