The centres - iHub, m:Lab, naiLab and 88mph - will now benefit from super-fast Internet speeds to launch their applications.

“With this 100mbps of Internet connectivity, Kenya’s technology entrepreneurs and innovators will be able to work on online graphical design projects that would have otherwise been difficult to test before deploying, a process called rendering,” SEACOM sales account manager, Michael Otieno, said.

Otieno added that SEACOM believes in the application development, design, coding, and programming talent available in Africa.

"One of the core drivers of SEACOM’s strategy is to fast track African ICT skills and enterprise development by leveraging its existing Internet infrastructure to provide connectivity in-kind, support to universities, high schools, ICT innovation centres, plus ICT learning and training centers throughout Africa," SEACOM Kenya country manager, Joseph Muriithi, said.

“SEACOM will support the government in its commitment to ICT development in the country by providing accelerated Internet connectivity to the Internet community at large.”
