Liquid Telecom Donates Server, Bandwidth, Access to African IXPs
We just installed a $20,000 server donated by Liquid Telecom. Liquid have also given us an uncapped link to their backbone network and will announce our IP address space at every IXP they can reach in Africa. This means that, for the first time ever, gamers in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and South Africa will all have fast access to the same server.
Stay tuned. It will take us a few weeks get everything set up properly. Big thanks to Ben Roberts, Andrew Alston, and the rest of the team at Liquid Telecom for making this happen. Thanks also to Fred Muteesa from Infocom for assisting with the install.
