‘Always-on, disruption-free’ broadband launched in North Africa

‘Always-on, disruption-free’ broadband service launched in North Africa.

An internet service that promises never to experience disruptions is launching in North Africa by US firm Mushroom Networks and French based IT company Impartial-IT.

Mushroom Networks plans to introduce its ‘broadband bonding’ service, which links several access points from different service providers enabling companies to have stable connections despite failure in any of the internet access points.

The broadband bonding technology accepts any combination of connections, including T1, fiber, DSL, or cable, and combines them for optimal speed and improved reliability owing to redundancies of multiple connections, Impartial-IT said in a statement.

Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria are countries set to get the service.

"We are excited about teaming up with Mushroom Networks to be able to offer businesses around the globe Broadband Bonding as an alternative technology for high bandwidth at an affordable price," Laurent Goffinet, founder and managing partner at Impartial-IT said.
