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

  • 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,

  • Hello Anurag,
