Our solution

We don’t just own and operate one of the world’s best-connected Internet backbones, but we’ve also spent three decades developing and perfecting it. From the optical fiber right up to the customer service layer, our highly skilled and experienced engineers manage our network infrastructure and customer support 24/7. 

For organizations without the need for an AS number, we offer direct access to the Internet via our Dedicate Internet Access (DIA) offering, with guaranteed bandwidth and symmetrical speed, together with management of customer IP addresses and the BGP routing environment. 

For organizations looking to connect directly to the Arelion Internet backbone with their own Autonomous System (AS) number backbone, our IP Transit service is the perfect solution.

AS1299, our global Autonomous System, is a carrier-class network built for reliability and maximum uptime. We offer a full global routing table with minimal hops and our directly connected IP customer base accounts for 65% of all global Internet routes.

Through a mix of industry best practice, cutting-edge systems, and well-crafted policies, we minimize the chances of common routing threats, including BGP hijacks and route leaks.

Your organization is unique, and so are our connectivity solutions.
