This translates to remarkably reduced latency and seamless data transfer and will fundamentally reshape the internet experience for individuals and businesses alike.

The Significance of LIXP: An Internet Exchange Point (IXP) like LIXP serves as a vital pillar of a robust digital ecosystem. It brings together internet service providers, content providers, and telecommunications companies to directly exchange internet traffic. This reduces latency, lowers costs, and spurs digital innovation, ultimately benefiting the entire country.

Key Players Join LIXP: Paratus’s Data Center integration with LIXP has attracted a roster of key industry players, including Paratus, Inq, MTN, Infratel, Zamtel, Zamren, Liquid Telecom, FibreCom, Airtel Zambia, among others. This convergence of industry leaders underlines the pivotal role LIXP plays in transforming Zambia’s digital landscape.

Our company is dedicated to advancing Zambia’s digital capabilities and this partnership with LIXP is a further testament to our commitment.  We believe this collaboration will empower businesses and individuals to thrive in the digital age.
