Pan-African telecommunications services provider, Internet Solutions (IS), which is also present in Mauritius, recently announced the addition of three Points of Presence (PoPs) to its extensive network across the African continent.
Lesotho, Swaziland, and Malawi are the countries that have been provided with the new PoPs as the company wants to boost its capacity to support business in Africa.
The South-Africa based telecom major currently has PoPs in Mauritius, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Namibia, Angola, Botswana, Ghana, Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
With the PoPs, businesses will get access to the company’s high-capacity network and thereby get more opportunities for networking growth in Africa.

According to the chief operating officer at IS, telecommunications infrastructure is important to enable the firm to provide excellent solutions and services to its clients across Africa.
“To deliver on our African growth strategy, we will continue to invest in infrastructure assets through owned build-outs as well as acquisitive investments, as appropriate for each market,” Sunker said.
Moreover, the company is present across Africa and provide services using network-to-network interfaces and partners.
