Raxio Data Centre has announced the presence of nine new local fibre carriers at its Namanve-based carrier-neutral facility.

The carriers are: Africell Uganda Limited, Airtel Uganda, Bandwidth and Cloud Services Group, Csquared, Liquid Telecom, MTN Uganda, National Information Technology Authority-Uganda, Roke Telkom and Uganda Telecom Limited.

All nine local fibre carriers will provide reliable internet connectivity to enable seamless data connections at competitive prices.

“We are happy to unveil these nine local fibre carriers who all represent efficiency and high quality in connectivity,” said James Byaruhanga, general manager of Raxio Data Centre.

“As a carrier neutral data centre, our customers will have multiple local fibre carriers to select from; this provides geographical and physical redundancy and diversity to support their critical business operations.” 

Due to socio-economic challenges, Raxio Data Centre is encouraging customers to view an outsourced carrier neutral data centre as a better way of supporting their business operations.

This is because it enables multiple points of connectivity redundancy, resilience in service, optimal uptime, and diversity in options to select from. 

In addition, by having a point of presence at Raxio Data Centre, local fibre carriers will also have extended reach to more customers, which in turn leads to business growth as connectivity providers.

While for Raxio Data Centre this move aligns with its plans to attract more customers from a diverse number of industries, including banking, financial services, content and media, government and non-governmental, education, healthcare, retail and e-commerce, utilities, transport, energy, as well as technology and communications driven industries, to name a few.
