Galaxy Backbone and Eko-Konnect set to promote research:

Nigeria’s Galaxy Backbone Limited and the Eko-Konnect Research and Education Initiative have put pen to paper on a joint venture agreement to partner on backbone network for research and education. The companies said the initiative is a crucial step towards the growth of robust national infrastructure that would offer dependable high-speed connectivity, access to research output, teaching, and learning materials for tertiary education in the country.

The Chair, Eko-Konnect Board of Trustees, Prof. Charles Uwadia had this to say, “This development gives the much-needed impetus to the several initiatives providing services for research and education communities in Nigeria.

“The availability of affordable and dedicated network and data centre services for educational institutions across the country will provide the necessary momentum to work towards the community-driven platforms required for long-term sustainability.”
