Telkom has revamped its Fibre-to-the-Building broadband speeds with a 1Gbps offering to attract more businesses and individuals looking for high speed fibre internet to their premises in the city and across the country.
This comes just a year after the company rebranded, and days after Airtel and Telkom merger plans were trashed. Telkom has launched a Fibre-to-the-Building broadband service, offering ultrafast speeds of between 2mbps-1Gbps that is expected to increase business performance, enable and enhance service availability to 99.9%.
This upgrade is part of Telkom’s modernisation programme, which has seen the Telco invest Ksh 5.Billion towards network modernisation, leading to the launch of its 4G network; currently available in 32 towns and urban centres across the country and doubling of capacity and coverage on its 3G network.
“Today’s businesses are driven by the relationships between infrastructure, people and economic value. For Telkom Enterprise, our driver is to approach business not as an an infrastructure provider, but an ICT Solutions provider. It simply is no longer about connectivity but other forms of economic value with ICT as an enabler,” says Kris Senanu, Managing Director – Telkom Enterprise.
Other revamped Telkom Enterprise Packages include Postpaid Mobile Solutions, Broadband Internet, Enterprise connectivity, Fixed Voice Services, Unified Communications, Managed Services and Cloud Solutions. The firm says the re-engineering and positioning of the Enterprise division at Telkom is resultant of lessons drawn from customer experiences, industry insights, economic factors and changing market needs, from a provider that offers more than just connectivity.
“Today’s Business ICT needs are changing from what ICT can do to what ICT can enable businesses do better, as well as what experiences customers take with them. Telkom Enterprise is therefore moving from simply developing architecture to building business strategy. In addition to the provision of business processes and capabilities, we are an enabler of business vision,” adds Senanu.
Mr. Senanu envisages that the opportunities for growth lie in collaborations with the SME segment and the Public Sector that is highly reliant on the Telco’s infrastructure for service delivery.
“As the only far-reaching enterprise solutions provider with the widest coverage across the country both on voice and data channels, our revamped positioning aims to enhance delivery, effective productivity, continuity, connectivity and collaboration to Counties, Parastatals, Corporates, SME’s and Start-ups that rely on our services,” says Senanu.
