Telkom Kenya has announced the expansion of its LTE network in Nairobi and the surrounding areas of Athi River, Syokimau, Kitengela, Thika, Kiambu town, Kikuyu town, Kiserian and Ngong. This expansion, which forms part of Telkom’s long-term network mordernisation programme, will also see the telco improve its 3G coverage within strategically selected areas across the country. Last week, Telkom extended its 3G service to the main campus of the University of Eastern Africa, Baraton. Telkom’s 4G network is now available in more than 30 major towns and urban areas.
‘We remain committed to consistently refining and progressively expanding our network across the country, thereby assuring availability and the delivery of high-quality service to our customers,’ commented Telkom’s CEO Aldo Mareuse, adding: ‘We initiated a switch-over in transmission to a fully-fledged IP platform, that has led to more efficiencies and continues to open up our network to easier scalability and integration.’
