7 May 2014

MTN Business is looking to spend KES800 million (USD9.1 million) to extend its fibre-optic network across the country, AllAfrica.com reports. Managing director Tom Omariba notes that the bulk of the funds will be used to deploy a Metro Ethernet network in Mombasa, the second largest city in Kenya, with a view to serving small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Further, MTN has re-opened its Mombasa office, which was gutted by fire in May last year. Commenting on recent developments, Mr Omariba said: ‘The technology will enable enterprise customers with global operations to easily communicate with branches and employees worldwide. It provides high security, high speed and high quality services to businesses’.
