> The 50th annivesary of Tanzania’s independence was celebrated in style by
> tzNIC staff as it coincided with the commissioning of the F-root Server at
> Tanzania Network Information Centre (tzNIC) offices. The long awaited
> project commenced on 5th December 2011 and was successfully carried out
> by Internet Systems Consortium’s (ISC) Senior Operations Architect Mr.
> Peter Losher in collaboration with tzNIC technical staff. The availability
> of the F-root server in Tanzania will facilitate the full localization of
> .tz Internet traffic as well as provide resilience, robustness and
> responsiveness of the Domain Name System (DNS).
> This milestone comes after tzNIC had achieved the full management
> (redelegation) of the .tz ccTLD and decentralization of .tz registry
> services (through the 3R model) to about  20 accredited registrars. Just
> after commissioning of the F-root server the latency improved to less than
> 10 msec from 200 msec before the installation.
