Layer3 and the Internet Exchange Point of Nigeria have entered a partnership to enhance internet services in Abuja and Kano.
The collaboration aims to improve residents’ access to Netflix and other online entertainment services by deploying IXPN’s infrastructure and Layer3’s solutions.
During the signing ceremony in Lagos recently, the Chief Executive Officer of IXPN, Muhammed Rudman, stated that hosting Netflix cache servers in Abuja would ensure a seamless streaming experience for customers using various internet providers.
According to Rudman, the initiative addresses the growing demand for high-quality streaming services and robust internet infrastructure, allowing Nigerians to enjoy diverse entertainment options on Netflix.
He emphasised the transformative impact of the collaboration on Abuja’s digital landscape, especially in the context of Nigeria’s evolving digital era.
He noted, “This partnership marks a significant step forward in our mission to domesticate Internet traffic in Nigeria and provide substantial cost savings on Internet services.
“IXPN’s robust infrastructure, combined with Layer3’s world-class solutions, will make high-speed, buffer-free streaming a reality for Netflix enthusiasts and users in Abuja and Kano.
“Netflix traffic will no longer need to traverse the long route to Lagos or beyond, resulting in reduced latency and a high-quality experience.”
The Chief Executive Officer of Layer3, Oyaje Idoko, noted in a statement, “We are thrilled to collaborate with IXPN to bring world-class streaming experiences to broadband Internet users in Abuja and Kano.
“Our commitment to providing seamless Netflix access is a testament to our dedication to enhancing the digital lives of Nigerians.”
