AccessKenya To Invest Kes. 300 Million In 2015 For Fiber Roll-out
AccessKenya Group (AccessKenya) has completed the roll-out of its metropolitan fiber network in key target areas around Nairobi and its environs. This is expected to grow its Nairobi Internet connectivity penetration in the Industrial area, Ruaraka, Westlands, Parklands, Mombasa road and the Central Business District among other localities.
AccessKenya also plans to invest Kes. 300 Million in fiber technology next year in Nairobi, Thika and Mombasa. AccessKenya’s CEO Jonathan Somen said that the company would target new business by offering cloud solutions and managed services that require high speed connectivity to data centres for delivery. “All our fiber installations are future proofed with capabilities to traffic massive data rates of up to 2Gbps if necessary”, he explained
Fiber-based Internet connectivity is preferred for higher speeds and reliability so AccessKenya sees this as an advantage in accessing new corporate customers. Clients will now be able to layer many services on top of its high speed Internet connectivity such as real-time CCTV monitoring, VOIP, Video on Demand and other key services.
