African Peering and Interconnection Forum (AfPIF)

Virtual Peering Series – Africa

Given the current situation, the African IXP Association (AFIX) together with the local host, the Rwanda Internet Community and Technology Alliance (RICTA), have decided that it is best to postpone AfPIF 2020 to, tentatively, August 2021.
