AccessKenya’s Network Expansion gains Space with 5 more Counties added to its fiber network

AccessKenya has announced its intention to connect five new counties to its expanding fiber and wireless network in the first quarter of 2014. The company which is one of the leading Corporate Internet and IT Solutions Provider in Kenya made the announcement a few days after upgrading its Nairobi-Mombasa fiber network for easy detection of cable cuts and deterioration. In line for connection are Kisii, Kitale, Narok, Nyahururu and Bungoma counties, and which will kick off the concerted effort to connect upto 15 counties this year.

In July 2013, AccessKenya announced that its strategic growth plans into the counties. According to Jonathan Somen, the Group Managing Director,  the company added seven new counties namely Kakamega, Kericho, Machakos, Murang’a, Kiambu,  Embu and Meru counties onto its fast growing national grid.

“We are committed to delivering localized ICT solutions to every county. AccessKenya appreciates that each county has unique ICT needs so we plan to work with county governments and ICT managers to tailor make and deliver scalable IT solutions”, said Somen.

Among its milestones in 2013, AccessKenya that seeks to be the preferred one-stop ICT solutions provider for county governments in Kenya won the Machakos County business, a major triumph given the county’s prominence of hosting Konza Technopolis.

In a statement issued at the time, Mr. Somen explained that presence in Machakos would allow the company to deploy its expansive expertise and service to the strategic County Government as it crafts its own ICT policies and lays a foundation towards actualizing Vision 2030.

AccessKenya is currently digging additional fibre cable extensions in AthiRiver and the North Coast of Mombasa to add up to its existing 450 Kilometer Ethernet carrier cable
