Top Story

UUNet Namibia has signed an agreement with Telecom Namibia to offer a national peering solution to its customers in the local market. "The agreement between UUNet and Telecom Namibia only caters for local traffic inside the country," says Werner Kriessbach, acting MD of UUNet Namibia. Previously, all local traffic had to be routed through SA.

"A massive advantage to this direct link is the time efficiency created with regard to the sending and receiving of e-mail in the local market. Corporate and personal e-mails will be exchanged far more rapidly, eradicating the previous time-consuming method," says Kriessbach.The new agreement expands the capacity of the link between the two networks to more than 0.5MBps.
