In addition to improving network performance, SITA Connect Internet reduces the complexity and costs of sourcing, ordering, deploying, supporting, and processing payments for multiple ISPs.

With SITA Connect Internet, customers have a single Internet provider with one point of contact, contract, and invoice, while still enjoying global Internet coverage.
