livestreamOn Tuesday 23 June 2020 at 13:00 UTC the Internet Society hosts a webinar to mark the release of a new report ‘Anchoring the African Internet Ecosystem: Lessons from Kenya and Nigeria’s Internet Exchange Points Growth’. Between 2012 and 2020, a vibrant community in Kenya and Nigeria, dedicated to Internet peering, helped dramatically boost the levels of Internet traffic that is locally exchanged from 30% to 70%. This has led to significant cost savings for participating networks. It has also positioned these two countries as the primary regional peering hubs in East and West Africa. This webinar’s speakers are some of the people, representing the key players, that contributed to the success.
