AccessKenya Acquires Additional International Capacity to Support its Growth Ambition

Leading Corporate Internet and IT Solutions Provider AccessKenya Group has acquired additional international broadband capacity to support its ambitious growth plans.  The STM-4 line with a capacity of 620 Megabytes on Seacom is intended to bolster the firm as it actualizes its network expansion strategy to cover all the 47 counties in Kenya. According to Raymond Macharia, AccessKenya’s Chief Technical Officer, the acquisition offers continued diversity in undersea fiber routes with capacity on multiple networks. This includes alternative paths through Mumbai and South Africa, which are helpful when Middle Eastern routes are unstable.

“To date, AccessKenya has deployed capacity of above 3.5 gigabytes giving us excellent and guaranteed service delivery options. With capacity on TEAMS, Seacom and Eassy cables we see this as a great value proposition to the market as we grow our services”, said Macharia.

The move comes as the company, recently acquired by the USD 5.8 billion global solutions and services provider, Dimension Data Plc, prepares the ground for growth into the counties. Just this week, Kisii County went live on the AccessKenya wireless network following on the County of Isiolo that was connected in January 2014.

This year AccessKenya intends to connect another 13 counties through its growing wireless, metro and national fiber connection. In 2013 the company added seven Counties to its network. AccessKenya is currently extending its fiber cable in Nairobi and around the city limits, as well as in the Northern and Southern Coast of Kenya.
