The African IXP Association (AFIX) and The Internet Society (ISOC) have announced that the 11th annual Africa Peering and Interconnection Forum (AfPIF) will be held in Kigali, Rwanda from August 17th to 20th in collaboration with the local host, the Rwanda Internet Community and Technology Alliance (RICTA).

AfPIF is an annual event that serves as a platform to develop the African Internet. It brings key infrastructure, service, and content providers together in order to improve network interconnection, lower the cost of connectivity, and increase the number of users in the region. First held in 2010, the event was created to address the realization that most of Africa’s Internet traffic is sourced or exchanged outside the continent.
