“Since joining LINX peering community as one of the first exchange points, we have seen a more than threefold increase in traffic. We anticipate gaining new remote peering customers from across Africa and also from South America, once the South Atlantic Cable System is complete.”
The London Internet Exchange (LINX) is one of the largest Internet exchanges in the world, connecting over 825 member ASNs from over 75 countries around the globe. They are located in 10 PoPs across the UK capital along with regional exchanges in Wales, Manchester and Scotland. LINX also operates an Internet exchange in the Ashburn metro area in the US just outside Washington DC, LINX NoVA.
Jennifer Holmes, Head of Sales at LINX said; “We are delighted to welcome Angola Cables as our newest reseller partner and are looking forward to a long and successful partnership with them. This arrangement will provide African networks with a cost-effective and convenient method of connecting to LINX and enables them to enjoy the many benefits that peering in London has to offer.”
