It is located in the heart of Africa's Great Lakes with 11.55 million inhabitants. Since the internet is a key element for the economic development of the country, the Burundi government through the institutions responsible for ICT development in the country, in particular the Ministry of ICT and the Telecommunications Regulatory Agency, has motivated the operators in the country. Telecommunication providers as well as internet service providers to gather around an Internet Service Providers Association (AFOSIB). The latter has enabled the establishment of an Internet Exchange Point to reduce the costs of the Internet and improve the quality of the Internet. Global Content Servers have also joined the initiative greatly reducing International traffic in favor of Local traffic.
