APT – Online Customer self service portal The “Access Price Tool” is a tool, which provides you with cost information for Hub & Spoke and Point-to-Point services and enables you to submit the requests in an easy way. With only one click, the claimed request can be submitted to Colt for ordering or to request further details. In this case Colt will get in contact with you, to clarify the details. The tool allows you to search for an access option and price for a circuit with free searchable A-End and B-End or for a B-End with an existing A-End which is already preconfigured in the system. Mandatory information for the B-End is the country and the postcode. Further, the search can be more detailed by filling out additional parameters. Colt fibre connected and Colt partner connected results will be provided including SLAs and the standard or customized pricing. The preferred access option can be selected by clicking on the radio button. If you want to email your search result to someone you can also select the interface Type and Connector Type manually.
