The best MPLS provider is not always clear-cut, since everyone's needs are different. It is generally helpful to start with a long-list of providers and apply some comparison questions to focus down to the ones that suit you best.
People often assume they need an MPLS network, but then decide that a hybrid network would be best. If that's the case then you will need a slightly different long-list. This is because a major hybrid network benefit comes using multiple carriers and it is unlikely that a carrier will want to offer competitor circuits!
In that case you may be better off using a Managed Service Provider. If you need help choosing an MPLS or Hybrid supplier, we would be delighted to have a quick informal chat to share what we've seen businesses do before. Just drop us a line here.
