An Internet exchange point (IXP) enables local Internet networks to efficiently exchange data traffic at a common point within a country. They reduce the portion of a network's traffic which must be delivered via upstream transit providers, thereby reducing the average per-bit delivery cost of service. They also significantly improve routing efficiency and fault-tolerance.
In other words, Internet exchange points make the Internet cheaper, faster, and more reliable.
