AccessKenya Group, communications and IT solutions provider has said it has completed its roll out of the metropolitan fibre network it was implementing in key target areas around the country’s capital Nairobi, and its environs.
Through to 2015, AccessKenya says it has spent a total of KSh300 Million in investment in fibre technology across Nairobi, Thika and Mombasa to increase connectivity across the country and help grow businesses.
“Our interest in helping businesses grow by delivering affordable but critical end to end solutions for enterprises and even smaller companies,” said Jonathan Somen, CEO AccessKenya.
The roll out was started in efforts to grow the firm’s connectivity in various areas around Nairobi including Industrial area, Ruaraka, Westlands, Parklands, Mombasa Road and the Central Business District (CBD), among others.
AccessKenya also plans to target new businesses by offering cloud solutions and managed services that require high speed connectivity to data centres for delivery.
With fibre connectivity being preferred by many due to its high speeds and reliability, the company seeks to attract new corporate clients, offering them a new way to layer many services on top of pure connectivity such as CCTV monitoring, VOIP and Voice on Demand.
“All our fibre installations are future proofed with capabilities to traffic massive data rates of up to 2Gbps if necessary,” said Somen.
AccessKenya says this move to offer these services along new offering of cloud services and solutions to new and existing businesses is an important value for the company, following the acquisition by Dimensions Data in 2013.
Japanese owned Dimensions Data acquired AccessKenya as a strategy towards becoming a leading ICT and telecommunications service provider across East Africa by taking advantage of AccessKenya’s metropolitan network connecting over 560 buildings in Nairobi and Mombasa.
