TeleGeography's “Bandwidth Pricing Database” provides anonymous carrier price quotes for wholesale long-haul transport, exclusive of local access charges. Capacities range from E-1 to STM-16 on protected SDH/SONET circuits, and 2.5 Gbps to 100 Gbps for unprotected wavelength services.
Searchable by circuit type, city, route, region, and time period. All data can easily be exported into Excel for further analysis. Built-in graphing features allow users to quickly analyze price trends by route and by service provider.
