The Raxio Group, a premier pan-African data centre developer and operator, has announced it is investing and establishing ‘Raxio Tanzania’, one of the first state-of-the-art, carrier-neutral, Tier III data centres in the country. Raxio Tanzania is the latest facility to be part of Raxio’s fast-expanding network of interconnected carrier-neutral, Tier III data centres across the African continent.
As the second-largest economy in the EAC, with an estimated population of roughly 60 million and 86% mobile penetration in 2020, Tanzania is one of the biggest consumer markets in the region. The country has also been one of Sub-Saharan Africa’s fastest-growing economies, boasting average GDP growth of approximately 6% in the period 2001-202 – projected to be 5.8% in 2022.
With three subsea cables already landed in the country and another set to land in 2023, Tanzania will be an increasingly important connectivity hub for the region. Expanding the infrastructure backbone is critical to supporting the continued digital and economic growth of the region and Raxio Tanzania will serve as a key enabler of international IP transit for Tanzania’s six landlocked neighbours.Click below to share this article
