Friday, May 15th, 2015. BMG: A gathering to be held on May 27th and 28th in Barbados will bring together all the top internet providers in the region in an effort to improve services being provided.
This meeting is being organized by the Caribbean Network Operators Group (CaribNOG), in collaboration with other internet agencies across the region, and international content providers such as Netflix, Akamai and Google.
An internet strategist from Packet Clearing House said, “Internet Peering is used to bring Internet service providers and content providers from across the spectrum of the Internet ecosystem into one space to build relationships, broker agreements and discuss matters related to the development and strengthening of the peering relationships that underpin the Internet.
As an outcome of the upcoming CarPIF, regional consumers can look forward to a more stable, resilient, efficient Caribbean Internet.
Shernon Osepa, Manager of Regional Affairs for Latin America and the Caribbean at ISOC, said: “the forum is a testament to the growth and maturity that has taken place in the Caribbean Internet landscape over the past few years.
This meeting will address strategies for encouraging and increasing local digital content development, and opportunities for content delivery network operators in the Caribbean.”
As we all know, the internet speed in Belize is not what we want it to be, whether just opening your Facebook or trying to downloading a file, Belizean consumers have always been demanding more from our internet providers and with the steps being taken now, it’s a good sign.
