He added, “due to the increasing demand for high-speed services, Infonas has completed the full upgrade of the network to support the connectivity requirements between the major cable landing stations in the region.”

In addition, Infonas connects its regional network to its nodes in London and Frankfurt through a diverse low latency routes to enable the latency-sensitive customers to reach Europe effectively.
