A release from my employer

UberGroup, Northland’s largest regional ISP and an innovator of broadband technology in Rural Northland has set up a not for profit peering exchange to help lower ISP’s costs, increase speeds and help provide customers with a better overall broadband experience.
UberGroup believe for the government to truly achieve their goal of providing next generation ultra fast broadband we need to get the content customers want as close as possible to home.  And so with the country’s first UFB network being deployed in Whangarei, UberGroup is proud to launch NIX. 

Peering exchanges allow service providers to share the content that broadband users want in the most efficient manner possible – the ultimate outcome being much faster download speeds and lower costs.

Orcon, one of New Zealand’s largest ISP’s has already signalled its intent to openly peer at NiX which immediately means the high speed delivery of iSKY content, which is a huge advantage to Broadband users in Northland.

UberGroup encourage all ISP’s who will offer services in Northland to contact them over the next few weeks to discuss peering at NiX.

Interesting. it seems Orcon is becoming a bit like FX - running a network for content providers to get data close to the consumer rather than the other way around. I wonder if orcon and other ISPs will start charging more for content providers who want to get traffic to further away than the local IX.

ISP's will be able to interface with NiX at either 100mbit or 1gbit speeds right now. 10gbit is available on a as-requested basis

There will be port charges like other peering exchanges around the country, these charges are to cover equipment purchasing and maintenance and to go towards the administrative cost of running NiX.

NiX is running as a non-profit operation and co-lo is available in this non-profit manner for equipment to interface with NiX
