Shortly after its merger with Telkom, Airtel has expanded its advanced 4G network coverage.
Last month, the firm said it had injected Sh1 billion into growing its 3G and 4G network to improve voice and data connection for its customers.
It has now expanded the 4G network to 40 more towns, including Kisumu, Nyeri, Meru, Nakuru, Bungoma, Lamu and Garissa.
Due to the merger, this will also benefit he Telkom users.
“Airtel is committed to constantly innovate and improve on the quality of its products and services as an active competitor in the Kenyan market. As such, we are delighted to be increasing our 4G sites across the country. The expansion of our network coverage will ensure that majority of the urban population are well covered,” said Airtel Kenya CEO Prasanta Das Sarma in a statement on Wednesday.
This is in addition to its partnership with Google affiliate Loon to launch balloon-powered internet on Telkom’s network by June this year.
