Welcome to the Idaho Internet Exchange

The Idaho Internet Exchange (IdahoIX) is a community-driven initiative aimed at enhancing internet connectivity and lowering costs in Idaho. This is achieved by creating more internet access points in the region, making it the first of its kind in the state.

IdahoIX unites internet service providers (ISPs), transport carriers, mobile and content providers and internet users to exchange internet traffic inexpensively through a shared switch fabric hosted in Involta’s Boise data center. By peering directly and eliminating third-party carriers, IdahoIX strengthens local connectivity and keeps costs lower for all participants.

We all benefit from more reliable internet connections—and when like-minded internet users work together, we’ll make more progress quickly.

Business is Booming in Idaho

What’s not to love about Idaho? With cool vibes, an incredible and accessible natural environment and amazing quality of life, the state is growing in several key regions—but not so quickly that the challenges outweigh the benefits of being an up-and-coming hotspot. The drawback? Like many growing mountain regions, we could be better connected. That’s where IdahoIX comes in. We’re here to bring business leaders together to exchange local internet traffic more efficiently, improve overall performance and cut costs for all.
