Liquid Telecom rolls out 158 base stations across Kenya

Liquid Telecom Kenya, part of the leading pan-African telecoms group has rolled out nationwide Internet of Things network covering 78% of the Kenyan population.  The 158 IoT base stations across the country is an increase from 20 base stations that the telecoms group had in 2018.

The base stations, connected to Liquid Telecom’s fibre network aim at delivering guaranteed reliability and speed across the country.

Speaking during the 5th Lake Region Economic Bloc (LREB) summit held in Siaya, Mr. William Oungo, Head of Government Business, Liquid Telecom, said that the delivery of the base stations was in line with the regional bloc’s resolution on improving ICT infrastructure to enhance service delivery within the LREB member counties.

“Liquid Telecom Kenya has so far connected 41 counties and we are trying to make sure that the right environment for innovation, fields such as data science, machine learning and gaming can also be carried out in the rural counties as well as their commercialization without necessarily having to associate the urban towns with such capabilities,” Mr. Oungo said.
