MADRID

At the heart of the largest interconnection ecosystem in Southern Europe

The Iberian Peninsula is the new centre of gravity where networks from southern hemisphere meet instead of going further north to reach European networks and international content providers. Thanks to its direct connection to DE-CIX Lisbon, Barcelona, and Marseille, DE-CIX Madrid is at the heart of the Southern European interconnection ecosystem offering the largest diversity of local, regional, and international networks. 

As an ISP holding an important residential market share in Gibraltar, joining DE-CIX was a life changer. We found that 70% of our incoming traffic was coming through the DE-CIX link, thus saving paid transit links resources. Our average latency to the main content providers decreased by 50%”
