The exchange point in Nairobi is called KIXP, not KIX, in case it helps avoid that confusion.

Is there one in Kuwait as yet?
Terrestrial paths between adjacent African countries are still somewhat rare. I don't have science to back this up, but I would not be surprised if the toplogical centre of today's African Internet turned out to be the LINX.
