MyIX (Malaysia Internet Exchange) yesterday announced its revamped website with a new look and feel.
MyIX also known as Persatuan Pengendali Internet Malaysia, is a nonprofit organization initiated by MCMC in September 2006 thru cooperation of local Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to connect and exchange local Internet traffic.
