(Ecofin Agency) - Nigerian solar-powered Internet service provider Tizeti announced it has upgraded the capacity of its core network infrastructure to 100 Gbps. The operation involved upgrading the existing Gigabit fiber connection of its Points of Presence (POPs) in Lagos to 10Gbps and relocating from its operation data center to a world-class tier III data center.
According to CEO Kendall Ananyi, the network modernization will increase the reliability of services by providing various lines for network transit to the internet.
