What is Transport?

Transport is a layer 2 service.

Examples of transports would be include point-to-point circuits and metropolitan area or local area ethernet.

Definition: Transport Fees refer to the monthly recurring expenses associated with a physical/data link layer media interconnection into a peering location.

Unlike transit service, transport is not metered; it is sold as a fixed-capacity circuit that costs the same regardless of the amount of traffic exchanged over it.
