FairlawnGig Peers with Chicago Exchange for Direct Connections

FairlawnGig continued our efforts to improve speed and low latencies by establishing a peer-to-peer relationship this week with the Equinix Internet Exchange in Chicago.

Connecting directly (via fiber) to Equinix brings FairlawnGig customers a direct connection to hundreds of websites without traveling via the worldwide web. Instead, the FairlawnGig network interacts directly with other “peers” located within the Chicago facility. This results in faster connections, lower latencies, and a more secure connection on hundreds of sites, including…

  • Amazon
  • Apple
  • Dropbox
  • eBay
  • Facebook
  • Microsoft
  • Moody’s
  • Netflix
  • Sony PlayStation
  • Thomson Reuters
  • Yahoo

We hope you don’t notice as our speeds were already world-class, but if you’re using Office 365, playing online on PlayStation, shopping on Amazon, or even liking on Facebook, your connection will be more secure.
