Zuku, Kenya’s largest broadband operator by subscribers, has initiated a KES220 million (USD2.5 million) network upgrade, as it looks to offer improved download speeds and reduced downtime for customers. According to IT Web Africa, the upgrade is expected to be complete by the end of October, with Nairobi-based customers likely to experience speeds of up to 50Mbps. The infrastructure utilised by Zuku will be a combination of hybrid fibre-coaxial (HFC) cable and fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) technology.
