IP Transit, also known as Internet Connectivity, Direct Internet Access, or Bandwidth, gives you high speed access to the global Internet via Hurricane Electric's international Internet Backbone.

What speed connections do you offer?

100 Base T (100 Mbps)

Gigabit Ethernet or Gige (1000 Mbps, which equals 1 Gbps)

10 Gigabit Ethernet or 10GE (10 Gbps)

100 Gigabit Ethernet or 100GE (100 Gbps)

In addition, we can also bond ports of the same type (Gige, 10GE, or 100GE) together using LACP (link aggregation) to create larger logical pipes.

What is Hurricane Electric's ASN?


Do you provide native IPv6?

Yes, Hurricane Electric operates the largest native IPv6 backbone in the world as measured by the total number of customer networks connected and by the total number of customer prefixes announced.

Do you provide BGP?

Yes, we provide a full BGP table at no additional charge to any customer network that has its own ASN.

Whose IPv4 network are you selling?

Our own! We operate an International Internet Backbone in North America, Europe, and Asia.

Our IPv4 network is ranked in the top 10 in the world as measured by the number of networks we connect.

How do I connect to your backbone?

If your network is within one of the datacenters where Hurricane Electric operates a core router, you simply order a cross connect to us from the facility operator.

Otherwise, you get a circuit, layer 2 transport, or dark fiber to the nearest facility that contains a Hurricane Electric core router from a local loop provider, metro ethernet provider, or fiber network.

What are your locations?

A list of our core router locations may be found at http://he.net/ip_transit.html

Where can I find a network map?

How long does it take to turn up a transit connection?

Transit can be turned up generally within 1-3 business days, but may need longer amounts of time depending on potential equipment shipments, cross-connect orders, and IP allocations.

Does Hurricane Electric offer flat rate pricing plans for IP transit?

Certainly. We offer flat rate pricing plans for 100 Mbps on 100BaseT, 1 Gbps on Gige, and 10 Gbps on 10Gige.

Can I get IPs with my IP transit order?

Sure. HE can assign IPv4 and IPv6 address space. Adequate justification is necessary.

I need more than a Gige connection, but not quite a full 10 Gige - can I get bonded ports?

Yes, of course.
