Liquid Telecom beefs up its East Africa Internet Connection

Zimbabwean based and Africa’s largest fibre optic laying firm, Liquid Telecom have improved their connectivity speeds across the East African region, providing their customers with a more reliable service.
The necessary move comes hardly weeks after African nations were continuously cut off due to acts of sabotage suffered on on Africa’s last mile fibre connections.
The company, who took over Kenya Data Networks’ (KDN) operations through an acquisition, said they have also commissioned a gigabit circuit between Kenya and South Africa from SEACOM. It has also rerouted many East African IP addresses prefixes to Johannesburg Internet
Exchange (JINX), which will see internet traffic between South Africa and East Africa
going through this exchange rather than through Europe. “As a result, traffic on Liquid Telecom’s networks in Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda isliquid 2
already much faster with the lowest latency rates on the continent (down from over
400ms to nearer 50ms). Customers benefiting include ISPs, carriers and businesses
of all sizes across Eastern and Southern Africa,” the company said. Nic Rudnick, CEO of Liquid Telecom, said: “The recent problems in East Africa once
again highlight Africa’s need for a large-scale, high-speed, fully redundant, cross-
border network. That’s why Liquid Telecom is investing in its own infrastructure. “We know that by building and managing our own fibre infrastructure, we’re agile
enough to solve our customers’ problems and improve standards and quality, even in
the toughest conditions.” In the last few weeks, SEACOM, one of the major fibre connection providers, went down, citing several fibre cuts. The company said during the major fibre cuts it used other routes to ensure connectivity for its customers. Apart from KDN, Liquid Telecom took over Rwandan ISP Stream and InfoCom, an ISP
in Uganda, making itself a formidable communications company in East Africa.
