Safaricom to launch 5G network Friday in Nairobi and western Kenya


On Friday, Safaricom will launch Kenya’s first fifth-generation (5G) mobile internet services targeting major urban centres, making it the first operator to offer commercial and superfast services in Kenya.

Last year, the leading Telco completed testing and trials for the upgraded network.

Safaricom revealed the Friday launch of the 5G technology that will be supplied by Nokia Corporation and Huawei—which has been the subject of increased scrutiny in the Western world over the introduction of the high speed networks.

This service will be available in Nairobi and greater western Kenya including Kisumu, Kisii and Bungoma, which routinely witness increased data traffic.

“Safaricom will be the first operator in East Africa to launch 5G services and will be showcasing the capabilities of the network with the aid of Huawei and Nokia’s technologies,” Safaricom said.

Users who want to benefit with the new network will have to acquire new handsets that support 5G network so that they can enjoy the super fast network.
