Hi SM,

Thanks for your reply. I'm aware of this study report of the Internet
Society about the impact of IXPs on the local development of the Internet. I
know how It is important to keep the local traffic effectively local. 
We are talking about this since but there is still no Internet Exchange
Point (IXP) in Cameroon and Internet users are still paying very high
Internet access cost. Our other hope is to see our ccTLD be good managed and
cheaper in term of having a local domain name.

While waiting to all those positive changes to happen, We have to work with
what is available and reachable to us.

Best regards,

I don't have any opinion about whether a web site must be accessible 
over IPv6 or not.

For the Africa part, see

I didn't suggest not talking about IPv6 or anything else.

Yes and that is what I read from the web site.
