TESPOK on the other hand is actively involved in operating and promoting the Kenya Internet Exchange Point (KIXP), a facility that keeps Kenyan Internet traffic Local.  The concept of Internet exchange points (IXPs) is built around interconnecting internet service providers (ISPs) at one point and Content delivery networks (CDNs)  by utilizing dynamic routing techniques, exchanging traffic destined for local services providers connected to the exchange point locally without utilizing the expensive international link capacity. 

Currently offering 1G / 10G/ 100G ports sizes, KIXP is available at all Carrier Neutral Data centers in Kenya as of March 2023. 

They join the summit to engage with and influence ICT policy and regulations by engaging the government at the relevant levels to address challenges faced by Technology stakeholders and provide guidance on resolution recommendations.
