IP 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
