Internet and IT solutions provider AccessKenya Group has rolled out a network upgrade drive to deliver faster internet speeds over the next twelve months.
The exercise which began in December, involves the conversion of all its wireless base stations to fibre optic cable links which is expected to increase bandwidth capacity by more than 80 per cent.
AccessKenya Group network manager Cyril Oluoch said the upgrade is part of the larger plan to boost internet connectivity over vast regions a demand that has been on the increase among the company's corporate clientele.
"The conversion will enable us achieve up to one gigabit bandwidth, up from the maximum 200Mbps delivered on wireless backhauls," said Oluoch. "This will not only guarantee better speeds for our clients but also deliver upgraded capacities for more customers".
