The National Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (NTRC) will be hosting the signing of an Internet Exchange Point (IXP) Agreement between the service providers Digicel and Flow.
The NTRC says that both providers will be signing a Memorandum of Understanding and an Internet Exchange Governance Agreement to facilitate the peering at our local Internet Exchange Point.
With the two companies peering at the IXP, their networks will interconnect directly, rather than through a third party in a foreign territory. This will result in faster connectivity for customers and also lower operating costs to the internet service providers.
The signing event will be held on Thursday November 30, 2017 at the NTRC’s Conference Room from 10:00AM – 11:00AM whereby the Service Providers Flow and Digicel, a representative from the Internet Society (ISOC) and the Director of the NTRC will deliver remarks.
