Coverage & Pricing

Internet transit service is delivered via interconnection at our Vancouver or Toronto network colocation facilities. Discounted pricing is available with volume and term commitments.

Actual Usage Billing

Usage is calculated based on the actual number of gigabytes (GB) that pass through the customer's Internet access feed in both directions over a period of one month.

Sustained Bandwidth Billing

The rate of data passing through the feed is measured in each direction every 10 minutes, generating a list of rates. Each month, the top 5% of these rates are discarded from the list, leaving the 95th percentile, which is the rate in Mbps at which the customer is billed, saving customers from cost increases caused by unusual usage spikes.


More Details

Customers may arrange for local access services themselves or request that TNW Networks arrange local access services.  Customers are responsible for all costs associated with local access services (i.e. monthly service fees, installation).
