Orange Kenya Upgrades Network to Fibre


Vandalism and cable cuts have taken a great toll on Orange Kenya’s copper network, replacements are both costly and complex. The broadband provider had initiated a plan to upgrade its entire network to fibre optic back in 2012. The total cost of this operation is expected to be Kshs. 4 billion.

The first phase of the Pambazuka Transformation has been commissioned to begin at Nairobi’s Upper Hill and Milimani Areas. The area is home to several government offices, diplomatic missions and multinational corporation offices. Orange will also be upgrading to next-gen switching infrastructure beginning with the Milimani Exchange.
