The business solutions are part of its Business initiative, and will see corporates in Kenya enjoy reliable data connectivity, cloud services and consistent service quality.
The business solutions include high-speed, dedicated Fibre Internet Access with options ranging from 10 Mbps up to 1 Gbps which will allow businesses in not just Kenya but East Africa unlock their true potential in today’s connected world.
“SEACOM initially focused on bringing low-cost data transmission infrastructure to other service providers in Africa. However, we were not seeing the optimal take-up of our international data capabilities to the end-user market, and the associated benefits that this can bring,” said Byron Clatterbuck, SEACOM CEO.
He added, “SEACOM is now offering its data and other services directly to companies in East Africa, with a focus on our regional and international footprint that other providers lack. We own and operate our own network end-to-end at the fibre level, allowing us to offer seamless and cost-effective network solutions regionally, as well as into Europe and Asia.”
Although just launched, almost 50 businesses have already signed up for the offering with more to follow suit each month.
Also, SEACOM has recently appointed several corporate partners to support its drive into the SME market, and speed up the acquisition of corporate customers.
“The time is right for us to diversify our business into the corporate market with focused data offerings bundled with last-mile fibre. We believe the uptake will be tremendous as customers get a taste of our service offering, which we have already seen in South Africa,” said Patrick Ndegwa, SEACOM Business Sales Lead.
