The St. Kitts and Nevis Internet Exchange (SKNIX) is a facility that allows internet service providers, network operators and content providers to exchange domestic internet traffic in St. Kitts and Nevis instead of routing it outside of the country (e.g. through the U.S.A. or Europe).
The primary objective of the SKNIX is to provide a neutral facility where members can establish direct interconnections of their networks. By so doing, the members and their customers will benefit from improved quality of service including faster, more reliable and lower latency internet connectivity. The internet exchange is also expected to lay the foundation for the development of local internet services such as colocation and local content development, hosting and distribution.
The SKNIX is hosted at the National ICT Center at the C.A.P. Southwell Industrial Site in St. Kitts. The National ICT Center is also home to the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis’ Department of Technology.
