TP-IXThe Twin Ports Internet eXchange (pronounced “tipix”) is a local connection point for Internet related organizations in the Duluth, Minnesota -- Superior, Wisconsin Twin Ports area to exchange their network traffic. TP-IX is a great resource to improve local network performance and reliability while reducing overall bandwidth costs.
Free Direct Interconnection
Direct interconnection ensures that the traffic between networks is faster and more reliable. Traffic between peered networks via third parties is reduced. TP-IX peers can make less use of upstream providers that were previously the only link between networks, thus reducing costs and decreasing the risk of a broken transit connection.
