Advantages of connecting to SoIXP

In Somalia the cost of internet bandwidth is very high comparing Kenya and Tanzania. While we acknowledge that this is partly contributed due to many factors, but dependence on expensive international links is one of them. Thus reducing it will make the price go down.

Currently all traffic goes to international links, thus making a percentage of local traffic exchanged locally will significantly reduce the price. This will also lead to creation of local content and increased innovation.
