The national backbone has undergone major changes in the last three
months. L'Agence Tunisienne Internet (ATI) is the new Internet backbone in
Tunisia. The old provider was l'Institut Regional des Sciences Informatiques
et Telecommunications ( IRSIT). In technical terms, the connection was
upgraded from a 9.6 to a 512K line that goes directly to the US. All the
equipment that was at IRSIT had to be moved to ATI. Meanwhile, the service
was slow and at times had to be interrupted. Things are going back to
normal, the waiting list for new accounts is still long but things are
beeing processed as best as possible.
I suggest you visit l'ATI's web site for more information: www.ati.tn.
Once you are in Tunis, I suggest you call (216 1) 351 799 to apply for
