Kenya’s Safaricom targets more fixed internet users with 5G network

Kenya’s mobile service provider Safaricom said that it has partnered with Chinese technology firm Huawei to commercially launch the 5G network in the east African nation.

Peter Ndegwa, CEO of Safaricom told journalists in Nairobi, Kenya’s capital that it has 35 active 5G sites spread across Nairobi, Kisumu, Kisii, Kakamega and Mombasa and plans to expand to 200 sites across the country by March 2023.

He noted that the launch of 5G is the first step in empowering retail and enterprise customers to start exploring new opportunities that 5G provides. According to Ndegwa, 5G trials had begun in March in the East African country last year.
