AccessKenya completes fibre rollout in three cities

29 May 2015

AccessKenya Group has completed the rollout of its metropolitan fibre network in Nairobi, Nakuru and Thika, ITWeb Africa reports, citing the company’s chief technical officer Raymond Macharia. The upgrade forms part of AcessKenya’s KES300 million (USD3.0 million) investment programme that will see 18 major towns equipped with fibre connectivity and enhanced bandwidth by 2016. ‘The number of enterprises and county-reliant businesses that need high speed connectivity and other related solutions has been on the rise and this has been exerting a strain on existing resources,’ Macharia said, adding: ‘To meet this demand, we are deploying infrastructure to widen our network footprint as well as increase the bandwidth to reach more corporate customers with reliable connectivity… We have also ensured that the new hardware can now handle these additional demands in data rates of up to 100Gbps.’
