AccessKenya is doing it’s part in connecting the country to the much needed Fiber optic connection. That’s part of the essential growth elements needed for the prosperity of the economy, most of which we see being fast tracked by access to ICTs. AccessKenya’s main target is corporate clients whom it seeks to supply with reliable data connection, Data Backup, Disaster Recovery and Unified Communication Solutions. The group has invested over Kshs 100Million this year on fiber expansion, with Nairobi and Mombasa as target coverage areas. AccessKenya’s Internet Division MD Mr. Kris Senanu says the expansion will cover a 45KM stretch in Nairobi and another 20KM in Mombasa, totalling to 350Kms int he two towns.
“Our reliability of service has contributed immensely towards the growth on our network. The past two quarters have seen a surge in the demand for fibre mostly from our corporate clients,” said Mr. Senanu.
Part of the expansion in Mombasa will include Nyali in the north coast and will target the major hotels in that region of white sandy beaches, expected to be complete by November this year. That could be quite timely considering December is the peak of peaks in the coastal town in Kenya. Some of the areas already covered in Nairobi this year include Eastleigh and Industrial Area (covering Likoni and Nanyuki, Kitui and Kampala Roads). Civil works along the newly completed Thika Super highway are ongoing and the company is targeting closure by September. Athi river and mlolongo should be due in the next two months.
