“Finding a way to match our powerful Ecosystem with our wide customer base was the logical next step for the company and this marketplace aligns perfectly with our vision to make connectivity easy.”
According to Megaport, the new platform will allow customers to search for services and engage with providers to meet their networking needs.

- Rapid and agile connectivity: Enterprise customers can find and connect to providers around the world in as little as 59 seconds
- Self-serve: Putting the control back in the hands of Enterprise customers, they can connect with who they want when they want, to meet their specific business needs, in an easy to use manner
