New “Connectivity, not Contracts” model shatters industry paradigm of vendor lock-in with flexible access to optimized data center IP connectivity
ATLANTA – August 29, 2016 – Internap Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of high-performance Internet infrastructure services, today announced that it is now offering its Performance IP connectivity service without a term contract on a permanent basis, giving organizations the unique ability to access global, route optimized data center connectivity as they need it, free of vendor lock-in.
“Customers expect Internet performance that delivers speed, reliability and a flawless end user experience. Anything less can damage their business results,” said Mike Ruffolo, CEO of Internap. “With the highest-performance IP connectivity, Internap is again leading the industry by offering ‘Connectivity, not Contracts.’ Our reliability and performance, now paired with freedom of choice and maximum flexibility, will drive unmatched customer value.”
Internap’s global Performance IP service powers Internap’s suite of infrastructure services worldwide. With more than 88 points of presence (POP) internationally, it combines the strength of a large and diverse tier-one carrier mix with its patented Managed Internet Route Optimizer (MIRO) software, which dynamically analyzes traffic – avoiding blackouts, brownouts and other slowdowns – and delivers it over the fastest path more than 99 percent of the time. The result is dramatically reduced latency and optimal content delivery, leading to higher levels of user satisfaction.
With “Connectivity, not Contracts” – immediately available to new Performance IP and colocation customers or those expanding to new locations, at any POP worldwide – Internap is taking the first major strides in the industry to disrupt traditional connectivity service models. By providing no-term contracts indefinitely, Internap eliminates vendor lock-in, giving customers the flexibility to change their Internet provider at any time with no termination fees.
