The West Africa Peering Forum (WAPF) invites you to an online conversation titled “Pathway to building a dynamic and resilient Peering and Interconnection Ecosystem in West Africa”.
West Africa has a vast potential with Internet exchange points (IXPs) to bring faster, higher-quality connectivity to people as well as foster digital transformation. But high costs for transmission capacity, regulatory issues, and insufficient digital infrastructure and innovation are limiting in-country, intra-regional peering, and IXP growth.
Join stakeholders from the region and beyond and learn how to foster the growth of Internet exchange points and how to connect the unconnected and provide high-speed, reliable, and resilient Internet to people at lower costs.
The event date is Thursday 29 July 2021 at 14:00 UTC (15:00 WAT).
