Ahmedabad, Nov 15 (IANS) The National Internet Exchange of India (Nixi) has set up its new hub in Ahmedabad, a move that would help internet service providers in Gujarat reduce bandwidth expenses. Earlier the communication and IT ministry gave approval to the Nixi to set up its hub here, the seventh Indian city to have such an exchange hub.
The central government has already approved such hubs for Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad and Bangalore.
The Nixi hub would restrict the wastage of bandwidth in local traffic and thereby save precious foreign exchange.
Nixi has commenced its operations from GNFC Info Tower here from Friday.
The state science and technology department would help the Nixi hub in its operations, government officials said.
