MainOne Connects London Internet Exchange Point


Main One has connected its cable network to the London Internet Exchange Point (LINX), one of the largest internet exchange points in the world with over 430 members from more than 50 countries worldwide.

Connection to the LINX provides Main One with reliable exchange of Internet traffic with improved routing control and performance. “For businesses connected to the MainOne network, this translates to faster response times to most popular sites. Achieving pioneer status as the first West African carrier to connect directly to the LINX is further evidence of MainOne’s dedication to innovation to improve customers’ broadband experience on our network,” the company said in a statement.

Last week, MainOne joined over 380 decision-makers from 140 different carriers and service providers to discuss the future of wholesale communications in Africa at the annual “Capacity Africa” event that held at the Hyatt Regency, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
