Internet reduction cost through IXPs in the Americas region

Project No CALL-54
Title Internet reduction cost through IXPs in the Americas region
Description The project aims to:
-Establish new IXPs in the region, especially in countries where none exists. The vision of the project is to have at least 1 IXP in every country of Latin America and the Caribbean.
-Create and strengthen partnerships between ITU and entities interested in working collaboratively in Internet related issues in Latin America and the Caribbean.
-Achieve consensus in the region among the different actors -ISPs, Technical Community, Regulators, Policy Makers- on the benefits of founding local and national IXPs.
-Convince other development actors - like Development Bank and sister UN Agencies - of the benefits of IXPs, not only for the access to the Internet and broadband, but their socio-economic impact.
