James Etherington-Smith reports to mybroadband on the current status of South Africa international traffic.
|SEACOM Cable Coverage|
According to an MWEB update (here) - “Some more bandwidth was brought online last night [10 October 2011] bringing us up to 83% of our required capacity. We allowed P2P traffic to run from midnight to 7am, after which it had to give way for critical traffic again.”
As MWEB also uses PeerApp's caching solution (here), it may help serve some P2P traffic without accessing the undersea cable.
