“As a member of NL-ix, Workonline can now peer with all NL-ix members in Amsterdam. In addition, as a reseller, we can enable our clients to peer with all members connected to the NL-ix EU peering fabric.” says Edward Lawrence, Director of Business Development for Workonline Communications, “adding even more weight to our commitment to connect Africa to the world and the world to Africa.”
Networks connecting to NL-ix will be able to reach the 471 other networks that are connected to NL-ix, anywhere in Europe.
