CityLink is pleased to announce the addition of two more local Internet
Exchange points to complement those in Auckland, Palmerston North and Wellington.
The Dunedin Peering Exchange (DPE) and the 3 Cities Internet Exchange linking
Hutt City, Upper Hutt City and Porirua City (3CIX) will provide opportunities
for partipants to keep local traffic local to those centres and to do so over
high speed unmetered connections.
Content providers such as Radio New Zealand intend to provide copies of their
high volume content at these Exchanges further increasing the value proposition.
As more participants connect to a local Internet Exchange the benefits of
having a high speed network connecting ISPs, businesses, education and
municipal authorities become evident and the redundancy provided helps those
connected even when major national telecommunication links have problems.
We expect to roll out other Internet Exchanges in Nelson, Southland, Hamilton
and Christchurch over the coming months.
