Toronto Internet Exchange (TorIX) is a leading North American Internet Exchange Point (IXP)

Our organizational philosophies and ambitions result in constant growth and improvement in our services,  providing access to the most attractive peers at the lowest cost.

TorIX was started from a need in the technical community to keep local data traffic local. When Canadian traffic flowed through the United States, the latency and costs associated with this model needed improvement. A group of experts from different organizations came together to create Toronto’s first not for profit internet exchange, TorIX.

With over 240 peers connecting, TorIX members have access to direct routes from many diverse peering partners. Using TorIX allows for reliable exchange of traffic with increased routing control and improved performance.

As a not-for-profit organization, we focus on investing our service into our infrastructure so our technology is up to date and we remain at the forefront of the IXP industry. By doing so, we can confidently provide our peers with improved network performance, low latency and reduced costs.
