"We needed a way to quickly and cost effectively onramp traffic from customers in Toronto and Vancouver back to our global network. We became a Standard Connections customer in 2012 to create points of presence without significant capital so we could leverage the power of our existing network."

– Dave Scammell, Chief Executive Officer, Sohonet

"We largely maintain our own data center facilities, but learned early on that without broad choice of networks our switching costs were too high. We deployed switches within the Standard Connections environment in both 151 Front Street in Toronto and 555 West Hastings in Vancouver, so that our procurement team could gain access to all of the network providers without having to replicate or migrate our existing infrastructure. The service has paid for itself many times over."

– Regan Kerry, Chief Technology Officer, Epik Networks
