We are thrilled to unveil a ground-breaking agreement that promises to revolutionize the digital landscape in Tanzania. Wingu and TISPA (Tanzania Internet Service Providers Association) have formalized a strategic partnership to expand the reach of TIX (Tanzania Internet Exchange) into the Wingu Data Center, the country’s first carrier-neutral commercial data center, critical digital infrastructure for Tanzania.

This expansion opens up new horizons, allowing Wingu customers to engage directly in data traffic exchange with a multitude of local, regional, and international networks. The result is a golden opportunity for connectivity, cloud, and enterprise customers in search of swift, cost-effective access to Tanzania’s thriving Internet ecosystem.

In addition to the immediate advantages, the expansion represents a collaborative industry effort with a grand vision: to boost digital economic development and firmly establish Tanzania as a regional content and interconnection hub. Together, we aim to bring the nation to the forefront of the digital revolution.

Nicholas Lodge, Wingu Tanzania General Manager said: “We are delighted to announce this pivotal collaboration with TISPA, a milestone that underscores our commitment to enhancing connectivity and digital transformation in Tanzania. The expansion of TIX into the Wingu Data Center is a testament to our vision of a digitally interconnected nation. This partnership is not only about making Internet access easier but also about laying the foundation for Tanzania’s digital prominence. Together with TISPA, we’re ready to shape a brighter digital future for Tanzania.”

This partnership between Wingu and TISPA is a testament to our shared dedication to progress and innovation. Together, we look forward to the wealth of opportunities this collaboration will unleash as we guide Tanzania into a new era of digital possibilities.
