Tanzania Internet Service Providers Association  ( TISPA )

TISPA strives to bring together the Internet community to collectively make the internet accessible to as many Tanzanians as possible. They are the founders of the Dar-es-salaam Internet eXchange Point (commonly known as the TIX) based on the 13th Floor, Posta House in Dar-es-salaam and the co-founders of tzNIC.

What an Internet eXchange Point.?

An Internet exchange point (IX or IXP) is a physical infrastructure through which Internet service providers (ISP's) exchange local traffic between their networks without having to use their upstream provider links. At the TIX we have over 20 peers using the IXP infrastructure



IMG_20150413_113519The concept of Internet exchange points is build around interconnecting internet service providers at one point and utilizing dynamic routing

techniques, exchanging traffic destined for local services providers connected to the exchange point locally without utilizing the expensive international link capacity.

With the presence of an IXP, domestic traffic is peered at the exchange point, freeing the international links from congestion, enhancing faster speeds of data and reducing costs and delays.
