Telkom Expands Its Fibre Network In Kenya To Provide Faster Internet
Telkom Kenya has announced that it has started setting up a fibre network that will serve the city of Mombasa, Kenya with the aim of providing much faster Internet to its individual and business subscribers.
The mobile operator wants to set up similar fibre loops in all the large towns within the country in order to meet the rapidly growing demand for broadband by homes, businesses and individuals.
According to Telkom Kenya’s CEO, Mugo Kibati, this latest development demonstrates Telkom’s commitment to connecting the people that keep Kenya on the move with the provision of reliable and fast internet.
Kibati said that these metro loops would facilitate improved access to the internet, which plays a critical role in the lives of businesses and individuals. He added that the move would further serve to strengthen Telkom’s position as Kenya’s most preferred data network.
The set-up of metro loops is a part of Telkom’s 1 Billion strategy to optimise and expand Telkom’s network across the East-African country.
The network expansion plan includes a solid Fibre-to-the-Building (FTTB) Network for enterprise and corporate customers, as well as 3G and 4G mobile connectivity.
