[Community-Discuss] [members-discuss] STATEMENT OF TANZANIA ISP ASSOCIATION (TISPA) -        Regarding AFRINIC

TISPA does not in anyway express their support for AFRINIC’s litigation, your message is highly misleading.

They are however merely expressing concerns for the continuity of AFRINIC service, and as AFRINIC said themselves and expressed in NRO website, the other four RIR's will ensure core registration service remain as it is, so even AFRINIC’s bankruptcy will not result in any disruption of its service. No ISP or end user will be impacted.

As AFRINIC is currently charging the highest fees among RIRs, if any of the other four RIR's would take over, surely this benefits African ISPs and ultimately, end users, with lower RIR fees and a better more stable service?

I for one call that at this stage, AFRINIC should be seriously looking into ways transition it’s service to other RIRs to mitigate the risk that they have mentioned today to the press.

Dear Members/AFRINIC

Please find attached the statement of the Tanzania Internet Service Providers Association (TISPA) in support of AFRINIC in the wake of AFRINIC bank accounts being frozen which is a concern that resonates with us. 

NOTE: TISPA is an AFRINIC Member and also represents 22 AFRINIC Resource Members in Tanzania who are TISPA Members.

Link to the statement is also available online on the link below.
