Telkom has begun setting up a fibre loop for Mombasa.
The new metro loop, the telco said in a statement, will connect Mombasa, linking it to Telkom’s over 10,000km of the national backbone and the 1,000km redundancy backbone between the coastal town and Tororo.
It follows the recent completion of a fibre metro loop for Nairobi and its environs.
Telkom Chief Executive Mugo Kibati said that the firm intends to set up similar fibre loops in all large towns to meet the growing demand for broadband.
