Additional DC uplinks: DE-CIX and Versatel

Great news from Contabo: We have improved our data center connectivity with two additional high-quality uplinks.

The already existing DE-CIX uplink with a bandwidth of 10 Gbit/s has been doubled, which means that the available bandwidth of Contabo to the DE-CIX is 20 Gbit/s now.

Furthermore, we have added Versatel with an additional 10 Gbit/s uplink to our backbone. Versatel is one of the premier global Carriers and offers highest quality, just like our existing ones. For example, Versatel operates the second largest fibre-optic network in Germany with a total length of more than 41.000 kilometers.

Our customers now receive an even better redundancy in case of a malfunction of one Carrier or a data center cable. Besides, the additional uplinks increase the available bandwidth and provide you, our customers, with an even better global routing and eventually a better price of traffic.

The Contabo data centers are connected to the internet with 80 Gbit/s now:

  • Telia Carrier: 20 Gbit/s
  • Level 3: 20 Gbit/s
  • DE-CIX: 20 Gbit/s
  • Versatel: 10 Gbit/s
  • M-Net: 10 Gbit/s

  1. Perhaps time to let VPS as well get option to upgrade to dedicated 500Mbps and 1Gbps connections?

  2. Hi

    Is that in Munich datacenter?

  3. Hello,
    Thank you for your comment, we are always working on improving our services for all of our customers. Since VPS are running on host server systems, it is a bit trickier to offer this upgrade option. However, rest assured that we will communicate any new upgrade option to our customers as soon as it becomes available.
    Stay tuned! 🙂

    Have a nice day,
    Markus

  4. Hello Anurag,

  5. I’m contabo customer for more than 10 years. I’m satisfied with their services and i’m so happy to see data-center up-links increased.
    Think bigger, Think GIGA…

  6. We are glad to have you as our valued customer and hope you’ll stay with us for a loooong time 🙂

    Have a good time!
