The first Taiwan Peering Forum in Taipei will let the world witness Taiwan again

Taipei, Taiwan, July 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  “The big gets bigger” is a trend in the Internet industry, in which the network traffic from the top-10 Internet content providers has exceeded half of the global network traffic. Therefore, Taiwan needs a forum for exchange and a data exchange platform to help bring in the service from international industry heavyweights and enable Taiwan local small companies to be seen at the same time, so that local companies can take deeper roots in Taiwan while benefiting from a bigger picture of the world, and international industry heavyweights can better understand the Taiwan market to increase the internet connection speed in Taiwan and improve the local internet experience.
