Broadband Access: Carrier Transit and Transport

Launched in late 2019, NCTC’s Broadband Access program is already helping members save thousands of dollars on carrier transit and transport costs.

Most members are experiencing 40-60% growth per year in broadband traffic. While rates have been decreasing, many members are still paying much more than larger companies.

Under the program, NCTC negotiates agreements with well-established national and regional carriers to provide our members with:

  • Better rates
  • Defined service level commitments
  • Circuit protection/redundancy options
  • Managed renewals and bid requests for larger volume circuit needs

  • NCTC has negotiated volume-based rates so the more members use, the lower the cost.
  • NCTC has dedicated account teams with the carriers to help members efficiently obtain quotes, make changes, and resolve issues.
