Madagascar: Initiation of the project Madagascar Internet Exchange to make downloading faster on Internet
The Ministry of Posts, Telecommunications and New Technologies of Madagascar starts the project Madagascar Internet Exchange (MGIX) to make faster the download speed for the Malagasy connected users.
 
A file currently downloaded in 15 minutes could be recovered in 20 seconds by the user.
 
"The MGIX will allow us to have our own database. The stream of our research is no more obliged to pass through a bank of data abroad, which allows this fast download level... We are currently about to negotiate with our partners. Well, funding sources have already been found", has put forward the Malagasy Minister of New Technologies, Neypa­traiky Rakotomamonjy.
 
The overall cost of the project should be around 150,000 euros, according to the newspaper L'Express of Madagascar.
