New in 2022, Connected Nation can help you established carrier-neutral Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) in your state or commumity.

IXPs improve regional internet performance by reducing latency and keeping internet traffic local that needs to stay local, while making cloud services and content faster and more reliable.

IXPs also lower costs for everyone by creating a marketplace that fosters competition among middle-mile and wholesale (IP transit) providers. States that do not have an IXP strategy are simply falling behind. Send us a message at or view our IXP page below!

Our Work to Close
the Digital Divide
Connected Nation believes that everyone should have opportunities to use technology to improve their lives, families, and communities regardless of who they are, where they live, or how they begin. For more than 20 years of work to close the Digital Divide.




On November 17, Connected Nation marked 20 years of service in 2021 by hosting a one-of-a-kind, live event that aired nationally from three US cities.

During this event, we brought together industry insiders, broadband experts, and those most directly impacted by the Digital Divide to discuss where we’ve been and what we’ve learned, how the pandemic changed the way we view and approach internet connectivity, and what’s next when it comes to access in America.

Watch this historic event below and feel free to share it with others as we work to spread understanding of the Digital Divide in our country.
