South African Ingest Servers
With Microsoft launching Azure Cloud services in both Johannesburg and Cape Town soon, how difficult would it be to set up a Mixer ingest server (or two!) in this region?
There are thousands of Xbox and Win10 gamers in South and Southern Africa, and most of them need to rely on the +100ms pings to London or Amsterdam whenever they try streaming. Sadly, this doesn't work very well. The same is true from a viewer perspective too - poor internet connections make watching a Mixer stream (especially on mobile) a challenge for many.
There's huge potential to grow the Mixer brand in this region, but it's going to need a little help and support from Mixer and Microsoft.

Ever since May 2019 I've been unable to watch FTL in my region (South Africa) on all platforms. So until support is back I won't support Mixer with a Pro subscription, not that they care, but it's about the principle. It makes it really hard to communicate with the streamer or mod if I'm always 15-20 seconds behind.
All i want is to be able to watch the stream. Not even windows own browser will load any of the video's
Make it happen!!
Got my vote. We need this desperately!
