JOHANNESBURG -- Teraco Data Environments, South Africa’s first provider of vendor neutral data centres, has announced that it now connects to the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX), which interconnects over 550 IP networks, making it the world’s leading Internet hub. The direct link to Teraco’s peering service NAPAfrica, which is effective from March 2013, brings Africa substantially closer to Europe in terms of connectivity, and ultimately offers endless opportunities for European carriers to connect across Africa. Lex van Wyk, Chief Executive Officer of Teraco Data Environments, says that the perfect storm now exists for African Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to tap further into global carrier networks through vendor-neutral peering at NAPAfrica, thereby offering African consumers access to high speed connections at a dramatically reduced cost as well as rich global content from international carriers.Teraco Data Environments
