Hi Hari,

Not really. Even if we setup a POP in Africa, most of the time, the
intra-Africa latency may be even worst, because often, the links among
different countries, goes back to Europe or US.

In any case, I'm not sure if TENET is able to support some tunnels, as part
of OCCAID, and if their connectivity to OCCAID is stable and provides a
better latency. It may depend on from which country you setup a tunnel to

However, when we setup a tunnel to OCCAID, we always measure, before
choosing the POP, what is the latency to the different POPs, so this will be
decided in each case to fit as better as possible (including TENET POP if
they can accommodate non-educational African peers).
