Welcome to the Uganda Internet eXchange Point blog

Since 2001, the Uganda Internet eXchange Point (UIXP) has been working to make the Internet in Uganda cheaper, faster, and more reliable.

This volunteer-led initiative, which began life as an esoteric engineering project, has since grown to become a core component of the national Internet ecosystem with the potential to become a new and competitive domestic industry. However, despite this success, our work remains largely invisible and not well understood.

The launch of this blog is an effort to address these shortcomings; to increase our public presence, provide insight into our work, and dispel common misconceptions. We also aim to publish tutorials relevant to developing IXPs, feature content from select external contributors, and share our thoughts on the Internet in Uganda.

We hope that you find it useful.
