If you can influence or if you can deploy IPv6 in your network, we could
assist you. The first step towards deployment is to request support here
https://vox.afrinic.net/566354?lang=en .

In 2019, we received 66 valid helpdesk requests (out of 146 in total)
from 12 countries in Africa.

In 2019, we organised 5 Deployathons in 4 countries, attracting 83
participants from 53 organisations.

With the helpdesk and the deployathon we have been able to achieve:

28 address plan in IPAMS
23 valid route6 object
16 IPv6 prefix
10 Correct RPKI ROA
10 Adverstised IPv6 prefix
5 IPv6 user traffic
2 IPv6-enabled DNS | customer

Of course, we can do more. :)

Kindly send us your request:
