Within the framework of LACNIC's +Raices Project, an agreement between ISC and LACNIC, an anycast copy of the F root server operated by ISC has been installed within the LACNIC region.
The installation of the root server in Chile will enhance the reach, strength and response times of the DNS system (a key building block of the Internet's infrastructure) regionally as well as globally.
The +Raices program is just another LACNIC’s initiative to promote the Information Society and the development of Internet in the Latin-American and the Caribbean region.
Organizations involved in the project are currently working to set up 3 additional nodes of F-root in Latin America in the next few months.
Further information on the +Raíces Project and how to participate are available from LACNIC´s website at:
