Telkom Extends Network Upgrades To More Towns In Kenya

Telkom Kenya is upgrading its network in five of the towns to cater to growing demand across the East-African country.

The ongoing upgrade is a critical part of the mobile operator’s KSh 1 billion network expansion and optimisation programme and will bring a significant improvement to its quality of service in Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu, Eldoret and Nakuru.

Also included in the network expansion is the IP Core expansion from 30 gigabytes to 100 gigabytes that will provide a better experience to internet users.

John Barorot, Telkom’s Chief Technical and Information Officer, said that the expansion and optimisation initiative is aimed towards the reliable delivery of high-quality service to all its subscribers across the country.

Barorot noted that delivering value to the subscribers is at the core of what Telkom does.
He added that there would probably be small incidents of network interruption during the execution of this latest upgrade but said that Telkom Kenya’s customers should look forward to a much-improved experience once all updates are done.

Telkom Kenya’s network upgrade covers both 3G and 4G sites in Kenya’s urban areas with a focus on metros and cities surrounding colleges and universities.
More 3G sites have been identified for an upgrade to 4G, with the update driven in part by an increase in smartphone users.

Telkom Kenya said that this expansion would ensure that subscribers enjoy high-quality live streaming, faster uploads and, and more swift and efficient sharing of video and audio content.
