WHIX is a distributed Internet exchange on the West Coast of Scotland. It is operated by HUBS' sister organisation, the West Highland Access Network. WHIX is operated on a non-discriminatory basis with any WHAN member entitled to connect to it on payment of a membership fee and a port charge. Once connected arrangements can be made bilaterally with others connected at the exchange.
Because WHIX is distributed between Applecross and Eigg, it is not a layer-2 broadcast network like many exchange points. Instead it is a full point to multipoint mesh implemented with BGP/VPLS. Also because of the paucity of transit provision in the areas it is the norm rather than the exception to have Internet transit over the exchange.
