26 Mar 2008

Regional business communications provider UUNET Kenya has inked a deal with Redline Communications for the provision of a national WiMAX network. The telco will extend its ‘Beyond Broadband’ network to serve corporate customers in Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu in 2008. UUNET Kenya initiated WiMAX deployment in 2006 using equipment from Redline, and delivering services to enterprise customers in Nairobi including the Nairobi Stock Exchange and the Kenyan Wildlife Service. ’With our second phase of deployment underway, we plan to expand our RedMax WiMAX network across the country so that more businesses can reap the benefits of broadband access,’ said Nyagitari Bosire, UUNET Kenya’s Project Manager for Broadband Services.
