NAIROBI – Mobile services operator Safaricom has upgraded its network to speed up internet connection speed. CEO Bob Collymore announced yesterday that internet connection speed had been doubled from 2.1mbps to 42Mbps (megabytes per second).
“As a data market leader, we are continuously looking into ways of improving our customers’ experience hence the investment in this upgrade to support the quality and capacity of our network,” said Mr Collymore.
“We want to offer our subscribers a wide range of advanced data and voice services with greater network capacity through improved spectrum efficiency.”
PC users will access the service using either modems or a broadband wireless router. The data improvement also came with new modems to support the speeds.
