Telecommunications Business Unit (TBU)
Kenya Power, having been issued with a NETWORK FACILITY PROVIDER- TIER 2 LICENCE by the Communications Commission of Kenya (CCK), has now developed a telecommunications business, “U-Telco” for its fibre optic business unit. U-Telco’s fibre optic cable rides on the existing extensive power transmission and distribution network across the country.
Kenya Power aims to deliver a complete line of telecommunications products to CCK-licensed application and content service providers. This will enable the licensed serviced providers to meet their ever increasing bandwidth demand for voice, data and video.
Since the launch of its fibre optic business in early 2010, the Company has signed lease agreements with a number of telecommunications operators including Safaricom, Kenya Data Networks, Jamii Telecommunications and Wananchi Group.
The extensive telecommunications network will also provide inter-connection for Kenya to the entire Common Market of Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) region and beyond.
Kenya Power is currently offering dark fibre on 5, 15, and 20 years Indefeasible Rights of Use (IRU) at competitive market driven prices. Completed routes include:
Routes Distance (Kms)
The Company’s target is to have more routes in service on a quarterly basis.
