INX-ZA Internet exchange port prices slashed

INX-ZA has cut the price of its 100Mbps and 1Gbps ports at its Internet exchange (INX) points around the country.

It also announced it will discontinue its 10Mbps ports in 12 months.

Internet exchanges offer facilities for ISPs and network operators to link and exchange traffic.

According to INX-ZA, this reduces the usage of expensive long-distance links and improves network performance.

Its INX points are the Johannesburg Internet Exchange, Cape Town Internet Exchange, and Durban Internet Exchange.

INX-ZA said it could not significantly drop prices of 10Gbps ports now because transmission costs are too high.

INX-ZA said once it gets good prices from transmission providers, prices will come down.
