, NAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 24 – AccessKenya is set to invest Sh300 million in fiber technology by 2015 in Nairobi, Thika and Mombasa.
AccessKenya Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Jonathan Somen said the company is targeting new business by offering cloud solutions and managed services that require high speed connectivity to data centres for delivery.
“Our interest is in helping businesses grow by delivering affordable but critical end to end solutions for enterprises and even smaller companies,” said Somen.
He added that Fiber 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,” he added.
The company has completed the rollout of its metropolitan fiber 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.
Last year the company was acquired by a South African firm Dimension Data at Sh3.052 billion.
The company has over 8000 customers and employs in excess of 480 people, with offices in Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu and Nakuru and representation in, Eldoret, Nyeri, Nanyuki, Thika and Athi River.
