Internet users in Garissa County have a reason to smile after the county was connected to the high speed Fibre network.

The network was installed by Liquid Telecom at a cost of Ksh 60 million and spans over 21km and includes a redundancy link.

The project has thirty clients so far including the County Government of Garissa and Kenya Red Cross.

A Liquid Telecom Engineer told Nepjournal that the company’s microwave and VSAT network clients in Garissa have also been migrated to the fiber network.

Garissa becomes the 39th county to be connected to the high speed internet link.

Liquid Telecom has built Africa’s largest independent fibre network which runs from the north of Uganda to Cape Town.

The network currently spans over 20,000km across borders and includes The East Africa Fibre Ring, and the first regional fibre ring on the continent.

The project adds to a bag of goodies for the County which will also soon welcome a connection to the National grid ending decades of perennial power problems in the area.
