Visser added that their ADSL network has been upgraded and is performing well. “In fact recently Seacom went down for a day and all international traffic was automatically rerouted over our other international routes and nobody even noticed,” said Visser.
“We have also significantly increased overall capacity and redundancy of the network over the last while.”
Visser added that with the addition of their Cape Town and Durban IPC this weekend, overall latency should improve for clients in those regions.
