New IXP facility will address high internet costs

The National Information and Communications Technology Authority (NICTA) officially announced the operational soft launch of the PNG Neutral IXP, which is a shared, and soon to be, a managed ICT infrastructure of the PNG IXP group.

The IXP also addresses the issue of quality of internet service in the country. It is a physical location where internet service providers (ISPs) connect to exchange local traffic with each other via a network switch.
