    DPM Lazović stressed that the Feasibility Study of establishing a National internet traffic exchange points (MIXP) in Montenegro showed that it is an essential tool for promoting the development of the Internet services, lowering the price of the Internet, unloading links to the global access to the Internet, improving the quality of service to the Internet access and communications security, both in terms of personal data protection and network security, due to increase the efficiency of business and economy. It is important that each country has an established National Internet Traffic Exchange Point, which we managed to implement in cooperation with the University of Montenegro, i.e. the Center of Information System of the University of Montenegro, the Agency for Electronic Communications and Postal Services, Telenor and Telekom, and with the great help of the International Telecommunication Union. This way, we made a step forward towards achieving the predetermined targets, DPM Lazović said.
