COLT offers flat rate Ethernet pricing to European businesses

If you're a European multinational corporation (MNC) that needs Ethernet connectivity in multiple countries, COLT Telecom thinks you should not have to pay extra. Instead, COLT is offering European businesses a single flat rate for international Ethernet services.

A simplified pricing structure will likely resonate with multi-site businesses that have facilities in multiple European locations. "Inter-country communications and transactions are crucial to the success of any large business, whether it is a bank, media company or legal firm," said Detlef Spang, managing director, Major Enterprise division at COLT. "At COLT we are working to simplify pricing structures to ensure that it is as easy as possible to set-up international communications services."

By offering a reduced single flat rate across 13 European countries for Ethernet services, COLT says that because customers can purchase their Ethernet services on a uniform price structure they will be able to save up to 50 percent on some tariffs.

On the international Ethernet services and interconnection front, COLT has emerged as one of the industry's most aggressive players, topping Vertical Systems Group's global Ethernet business interconnection mid-2009 leader board.
