The key factors that determine VXC pricing are the distance between the locations (the A-End and B-End) and the bandwidth that you configure.
There are three rate types based on distance:
Metro – A defined metropolitan area, usually a city or group of cities. A VXC connects two locations within the same city, such as:
- Two Ports located in San Francisco
- A Port and a Cloud Service Provider (CSP), both located in London
Zone – A group of metros, typically multiple states or provinces. A VXC connects any two metros within the same zone, such as:
- Seattle and San Francisco (in the US West zone)
Interzone – Different cities in different zones. For example, an interzone VXC connects:
- A Port in US West and one in US East
- A Port in NE Asia and a CSP in AU North

In the Megaport Pricing Tool you can easily obtain a VXC price estimate. Specify your A-End and B-End data center locations, bandwidth, and currency. On the graph that appears, you can experiment and drag the data rate speeds over a number of days. For example, you can specify different speeds for weekdays and weekends.
Estimates generated in the Pricing Tool are not valid for AWS Hosted Connections, where incremental charges are applied.
By default, partner-managed accounts do not display pricing details. Discuss pricing directly with your partner.
How does billing work?
Metro VXCs are billed a recurring monthly flat fee based on three bandwidth tiers:
- 1 Mbps to 1 Gbps
- 1001 Mbps to 10 Gbps
- 10001 Mbps to 20 Gbps
Zone and interzone VXCs are priced using two components:
- A recurring fixed fee.
- Bandwidth-based rate (priced per Mbps per month).
This rate is based on the time a VXC is active at a defined speed and bandwidth.
