Three campuses in the countryside of Bahia started being served by RNP by 100 Mbps circuits. The Alagoinhas Campus of the Federal Institute of Bahia (IFBaiano) that received the link for the first time, and the campuses of Santo Antonio de Jesus of the Federal University of Recôncavo da Bahia (UFRB), and the Federal Institute of Education, Science and Technology of Bahia (IFBA), which previously had 20 Mbps circuits.
The connections were made possible due to the partnership with the company Webfoco that made the connection between the locations and RNP’s Point of Presence in Bahia (PoP-BA). Thus, the campuses are connected to the national academic network, the Ipê network, and can enjoy high speed internet.
Other RNP deliveries in the countryside in December happened in Maranhão, at the Santa Inês campus of the Federal Institute of Maranhão (IFMA), and at the Bacabal campus of the Federal University of Maranhão (UFMA); in Rio Grande do Norte, with the delivery of the circuit at the Caicó campus of the Federal Institute of Rio Grande do Norte (IFRN); and in Rio Grande do Sul, with the connection upgrade at the Santo Antonio da Patrulha campus, of the Federal University of Rio Grande (FURG).
