Safaricom this Thursday launched 4G LTE-A in Kenya for its subscribers. Safaricom has been doing tests for the past several months in Nairobi which have not available to the subscribers until today. The giant network provider Safaricom launches 4G LTE-A to its customers from Mombasa to Nairobi with other roll-outs expected in 2015.
Areas already enjoying this service include Mombasa Island, Changamwe, Runda, Gigiri, Buruburu, Lower Kabete and Parklands. Safaricom estimates that Mombasa and Nairobi will be fully covered by March 2015 and in the next 36 months the whole country will be surfing at 4G LTE-A speeds.
Safaricom now launches 4G on availability of the 800MHz spectrum that Safaricom acquired for $75M and aligned to the closing of the contract to provide the Kenyan Government with security surveillance contract. Safaricom also spent $82M to acquire 450 sites and other network infrastructure from Essar.
Safaricom boasts that this is not the first launch of 4G in Africa but the best.
This is the best 4G in the whole continent of Africa and at 100MBps is the fastest in Africa,” said Bob Collymore, Safaricom CEO.
Safaricom CEO Collymore also added that 4G LTE will not only make an impact to consumers on their phones but also in banking, education and tele-medicine which will become more accessible to both enterprises and their consumers.
Safaricom currently has over 100,000 LTE ready smartphones and plans to lower device prices to as low as Kshs 9,000. You will need a new 4G capable device and a 4G capable mobile device to enjoy the newly launched 4G LTE-A speeds.
