Trading data on thexchange is a simpler way to buy Internet access and get higher performance from the Internet. Arbinet developed thexchange, its proprietary technology platform, to automate and integrate all three steps of the trading process ensuring smooth, low cost transactions for Members.

Using Arbinet’s automated, online trading platform, Members gain access to an unlimited number of networks at one location. With flexible terms, centralized routing and settlement, and no price markup, data on thexchange Members reduce costs, and optimize their data businesses through a variety of service offerings.


  • Choice of Service – Choose from managed route control, managed custom peering or managed full transit to best fit your business.
  • No Price Markup – Buyers interact with sellers directly, meaning real-time market prices direct from sellers. Arbinet does not mark up prices.
  • Choice of Settlement – Gigabytes transferred or 95th percentile billing provides you with true, usage-based pricing.
  • Flexible Terms – No traffic commitments; contract terms from 1-month to 1-year
  • Centralized Settlement and Credit Risk Management – Reduce working capital requirements with automated netting. Sellers are secured with 3rd party underwriters.
  • Increased Performance – Directly interconnect with networks through Arbinet’s layer 2 switch without additional network hops.
