Internet bandwidth and connectivity cost in Kuwait is high compared to digitally developed nations. While local regulatory structures partly contribute to higher prices, the situation also presents an opportunity to reduce the dependence of service providers on expensive International links by keeping local traffic local.

Statistics have shown that significant chunk of traffic transiting the International links is local. In essence, the cost of sending a local destined email is equal to the cost of sending an internationally destined email. To overcome this anomaly, connecting to ix.kw will ensure that the cost of sending a locally destined email is at a lower cost.
