Hetzner now peers directly at NAPAfrica in Isando via a 10Gbps circuit, the company announced.
“As South Africa’s largest specialist hosting company, Hetzner’s content is now easily available to all network operators at the various Internet exchange points in South Africa,” it said.
“This peering has mutual benefit as we now directly connect our large volume of hosted content with the many CDNs and ISPs located there,” said Athena Turner, Hetzner Marketing Manager.
Hetzner said that by having a presence at NAPAfrica and JINX, it has increased its reach into the local Internet landscape through its open peering policy.
Hetzner now peers with multiple large network operators in South Africa, including Openserve, Neotel, Telkom Internet, MTN Business, Vodacom, Optinet, Vox, Google, Microsoft, Hurricane Electric, Cloudflare, Borwood, and iBurst.
