Hurricane Electric connects 100 exchanges

11 June 2015 |


Hurricane Electric has claimed it is the first internet backbone in the world to connect more than 100 different internet exchanges.

Hurricane Electric operates a global IPv6 network which offers high-speed internet connectivity services using 100GE, 10GE and GigE connections.

Thanks to its landmark of 100 different exchange connections, the company claims to have improved connectivity in each of its geographic regions, and therefore increased the throughput, latency and reliability of its service for customers.

“Hurricane Electric is committed to delivering quality, high-speed internet connectivity to the global community and this milestone of connecting to more than 100 exchanges illustrates that,” said Mike Leber, president at Hurricane Electric.

“With the rapid depletion of IPv4 addresses globally, our standing as the world’s largest IPv6 provider confirms that Hurricane Electric is the most able to provide enterprises throughout the world with the best native IPv6 connectivity.”

Last month, Hurricane Electric unveiled its second PoP in Spain.
