Introduction:

The EASSy Project responds to a need:
The EASSy project offers a solution to infrastructural Internet access problems in Eastern Africa. It responds to a critical need for an effective and affordable Internet connection in a large region of Africa. The EASSy project intervenes in a sub-developed market. There are few direct high-capacity Internet links between and within African countries, and high-capacity transmission lines are mainly concentrated in the US, Europe and Asia. As a result, about 75% of Internet traffic in Africa first goes through Europe or the US, and is then routed back, a very costly process. For example, while Benin and Burkina Faso are neighbors, Internet traffic between them passes through France or Canada.

The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) in Canada estimates that Africa spends at least $400 million each year on the use of international bandwidth for national or regional data. In fact, in many cases, e-mails sent between two Internet service providers in the same country are sent abroad and then rerouted back because domestic Internet Exchange Points (IXP) are lacking.

    Sibel Çekirdekçi What is the difference between Medici and Rothschild of approach to risk management? The key to the Medici bank success was diversification. Earlier, European banks had been monolithic and very vulnerable to default by a single bad borrower. But the Medici bank was made up of multiple interlocking partnerships, each in some way independent from the rest.

He is careful to build up a large body of information about Plinio’s background so that the reader is able to understanding both his extreme action in a crisis, and the bewilderment which follows it. It is probable that Plinio has had no contact or communication at all with Australian-born people since his reluctant arrival in his new land, an experience which has left him cut adrift…
