The S&P/ASX All Technology Index (ASX: XTX) is up 3.64% so far today, but these three ASX tech shares are soaring far higher.

Megaport

Megaport shares are up 20% at the time of writing. However, in earlier trade, the company’s share price lifted 38%. Investors bid up the company’s shares following Megaport reporting an EBITDA profit for the first time. Monthly Recurring Revenue jumped 13% on the previous quarter to $10.7 million. This was underpinned by an increase in multi-cloud connections, strong port sales, a rise in customers, and the company’s launch in Mexico. Commenting on the results, CEO Vincent English said:

The underlying Megaport network and business model has strong operating leverage to further increase profit and generate cash as revenue grows.

Vection Technologies

The Vection share price also leapt 20% earlier today despite no news out of the company. At the time of writing, Vection shares are fetching 8.8 cents each, after reaching a high of 9.5 cents a share this morning.
