AccessKenya in Kes 300m fibre investment
AccessKenya Group has completed the rollout of its metropolitan fibre network in key target areas around Nairobi and its environs.
The move is expected to grow the firm’s connectivity propositions in Industrial area, Ruaraka, Westlands, Parklands, Mombasa road and the Central Business District among other localities.
“Our interest is in helping businesses grow by delivering affordable but critical end to end solutions for enterprises and even smaller companies”, said Jonathan Somen, AccessKenya Chief Executive.
AccessKenya has earmarked an investment spend of Kes 300 Million in fibre technology through to 2015 in Nairobi, Thika and Mombasa.
Somen said 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 fibre installations are future proofed with capabilities to traffic massive data rates of up to 2Gbps if necessary”, explained Somen.
Fibre connectivity is preferred for speeds and reliability and AccessKenya sees this as an advantage in accessing new corporate customers. Clients will now be able to layer many services on top of pure connectivity such as real-time CCTV monitoring, VOIP, Video on Demand and other key services.
This is in addition to seamless access to and from anywhere on the globe through the Internet Solutions and Dimension Data networks, spread across the five continents.
This is an important value proposition for the company especially in the delivery of cloud services and solutions, following the acquisition by Dimension Data Plc in 2013.
