News: London Internet Exchange wants backing for IXScotland.

The London Internet Exchange LINX is calling for more ISPs and local businesses in Scotland to join a regional IX outside London, in efforts to lower latency and accelerate connectivity for Scottish networks and users.

Following the release of a report by Audit Scotland and the Scottish Government, LINX has pushed back at the Scottish Government and urged greater support for its regional exchange, IXScotland.

The report identified their vision for a world-class digital Scotland by the year 2020 with an infrastructure plan of 6 pillars , with an internet exchange being one of the key factors.

Noticeably however, there was no reference made to the fact that LINX had established a similar exchange almost three years ago.

IXScotland was launched by the London Internet Exchange in 2013.
