Kenyans will from June start experiencing faster Internet speeds as the government completes plans to increase capacity by up to tenfold.

ICT Principal Secretary Jerome Ochieng’, during a visit at the Telkom Kenya offices in Mombasa, said due to the increased Internet usage in the country, the ministry is expanding the bandwidth for increased efficiency.

According to data from the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS), the total available bandwidth capacity in 2019 was 6.2 million Mbps, a twofold increase from two million in 2016.

“We will increase the bandwidth by ten times to have faster Internet speeds for citizens. The Covid-19 pandemic has made us think and work differently. The Internet has become everything to us, we are too much becoming dependent on the Internet,” said Mr Ochieng’.

“We are at 95 per cent complete and certainly within the next two to three months, we will be able to finish the administrative work before Kenyans start enjoying the benefits.”

He also said cabling from Mombasa to the flagship project Konza Technopolis has been laid to provide ready-to-plug backbone ICT network.

Kenyans will be expecting faster Internet speed due to last week's arrival of the 36 Tbps DARE1 submarine cable in Mombasa. This the 5th cable to land in Kenya and will increase the bandwidth. It will nearly double the existing capacity will also lower access costs.
