Last week the finishing touches were completed on our newest member connection.
Quickstream Internet, a Manitoba WISP, is now connect to MBIX and peering on IPv4 and IPv6. They’re plugged into to our switch at 167 Lombard at 10 Gbps.
This brings our connected peer count to 19. That means there are now 20 independent networks connected to MBIX, which is a nice milestone.
It’s great to have more Manitoban networks connecting to MBIX, traffic levels are now reaching 600 Mbps on the average day–all this represents data not flowing via expensive long haul links to the United States or Toronto, or through the expensive large telcos. Keeping data local is definitely good for Manitoba.
