Telkom Kenya launched free WIFI hotspots in Nairobi CBD

Nairobi County Government in partnership with Meelin Media Limited and Telkom Kenya will be providing free wireless internet access in select parts of Nairobi, to fill in the connectivity gap.

“This initiative is a boost to the government’s efforts to bridge existing gaps in internet connectivity. Whereas internet penetration has grown over the last few years, thanks to the mobile phone, sections of the population still cannot enjoy it owing to prohibitive costs” Said Kris Senanu, Managing Director, Telkom Enterprise.

“We are continually working to connect people who keep Kenya on the move. This is at the core of our vision as a company. It is the reason we have the most unbeatable offers on data in Kenya today, and the Link Kenya Project enables us to facilitate internet access to even more people in Nairobi.”

“This is the first of many initiatives to bridge the connectivity gap in the cities and major towns in Kenya. Ultimately, we’re looking at connecting people easily and for free, for a better urban experience,” adds the Managing Director of Meelin, Davis Nyamari.
