Where going further north makes no sense
Lisbon is the place where the sea cables from Western Africa and South America first hit the European continent. It is the perfect place to enter Europe and exchange traffic instead of going further north. With access at DE-CIX Lisbon, networks can peer with hundreds of networks that are connected to the DE-CIX Internet Exchanges in Frankfurt, Madrid, New York, and several other locations (GlobePEER Remote service). This means you get ten exchanges with one access and, from the start, more than 1,000 networks are available for peering.
Save costs, reduce latency, and improve your network quality
Connecting in Lisbon instead of London saves transport and colocation costs and massively reduces latency. Bypassing London spares you at least 30 milliseconds round-trip time (RTT). European networks and international content are already present, more will come, and you can peer with 170+ networks in Madrid from day one.
