Opera, one of the world’s leading browser developers have installed new servers in Mombasa City to improve browsing speeds in the country.
This is part of the firm’s strategy to continue leading the digital transformation of Africa.
The new data servers are located in the iColo.io MBA1 data center facility, chosen for its strategic location, ability to cool high-performance computing, and its local and international connectivity.
“With the installation of our local data servers in Mombasa, we are improving connectivity speeds and meeting the needs of millions of connected Kenyans,” said Krystian Zubel, IT Director at Opera.
“Kenya is a hyper-connected country with 86% of its population already online. The challenge is supplying users with uninterrupted and quick internet connectivity.”
With the installation of the new local servers, Opera is reducing connection latency and providing Kenyans with swifter browsing.
