The Botswana Internet Exchange (the BINX) was founded by
the Botswana ISP Association (BISPA)
in 2005. Its primary objective is to create a neutral environment
where commercial ISPs and other key organizations interconnect their separate
networks to keep local internet traffic local in Botswana.
The initial objective is purely for local peering and excludes any transit services. The BINX does not provide any telecommunications services, only a facilities management service for licensed operators who provide their own routing and links to and from the exchange.
Active BINX Members currently comprise the following:
Botswana Telecommunications Corporation
Broadband Botswana Internet
Bytes Technology Group
Department of Information Technology (GoB)
Global Broadband Solutions
