Angonix (Angonix.net), Angola’s largest Internet Exchange Point (IXP), today welcomed i3D.net as its first remote peering customer. i3D.net is a managed hosting provider specialising in online gaming that hosts tens of millions of players for game publishers on the Microsoft Xbox and Sony PlayStation networks. i3D.net joins 17 other companies at Angonix, Africa’s third largest IXP.
According to Darwin Da Costa, project manager at Angonix: “With the Remote Peering services from Angola Cables, online gamers in Angola will enjoy an improved gaming experience with a much reduced latency. It is the first phase as we look forward to eventually having i3D.net establish a local infrastructure in the country.”
