South Africa's Internet traffic - 2014 to 2021

Internet traffic in South Africa has increased rapidly over the last few years, with the country’s biggest exchange now closing in on a peering throughput of 2Tbps.

This is according to feedback from data centre company Teraco, which operates NAPAfrica, Africa's largest Internet Exchange Point (IXP).

An IXP is a set of physical infrastructure including routing and switching equipment which allows enterprises, network operators, content delivery networks (CDNs), and cloud services providers to interconnect and exchange Internet traffic between themselves and others who are connected to the exchange.

When a certain doek-kop wearing cretin, left this soil to pursue otherworldly activities in the great ether in the sky, everything changed for the better.

Only slightly.. things got cheaper but not cheap enough for the general masses to have impact on gdp.
