There are several aspects to the boost in performance which AUSIX member ISPs experience when they connect. One is the decreased latency when accessing content hosted by other members, as they do not have to longhaul the data over another network. Being a relatively simple network, AUSIX has less hops than those introduced by carrier-level providers within their infrastructure

Another benefit is redundancy, meaning that members can pick and choose which is the fastest and/or most cost effective way to get to particular parts of the Internet. Sometimes it will be a better option to use AUSIX, and sometimes it won't, but it is good to have the option available.
