Africa is the continent of 10 of the world's top 20 fastest-growing countries and where international bandwidth has more than doubled over the last four years. Together with local partners, DE-CIX is establishing Internet Exchanges in Africa, with the aim to increase the access and quality of Internet on the continent by improving local infrastructure and bringing content and applications closer to the businesses and end users.
Connected with the largest carrier and data center neutral interconnection ecosystem in Southern Europe, we are creating a perfect bridge between Africa and Europe.
As a first step on the continent, we have established strategic partnerships with digital infrastructure operators in 3 strategic markets: the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Libya, and Nigeria. We are planning to open more locations on the African continent in 2022 and beyond.
