SEACOM, has added new internet exchange points in Nairobi and Kampala to its list of peering (traffic exchange) agreements in Africa.

These new peering agreements will further enhance the performance and reduce the inactivity users will experience when they connect to Web services in Europe and across Africa.

Further enhancing its network offering, Seacom has added five more Internet exchange points at which it peers – two in Europe and three in Africa.

The company has added the Deutscher Commercial Internet Exchange (DE-CIX) in Marseille and France Internet Exchange (FranceIX) in Paris to the growing list of European Internet exchange points at which it peers, as well as new Internet exchange points in Kampala (UIXP), Nairobi (KIXP) and Durban (NAPAfrica).

These new peering agreements will further enhance the performance and reduce the latency Seacom clients will experience when they connect to Web services in Europe and across Africa. Its IP transit network now offers African service providers and network operators direct connectivity to a range of small, medium and large partner networks in Europe.

“We continue to invest in enhancing the Internet experience for our customers, whether they are connecting with services and content in Africa or the rest of the world,” said SEACOM Head of Engineering Mark Tinka.
