Wananchi’s Zuku to upgrade cable broadband

Wananchi Programming-owned Kenya-based pay TV provider Zuku is upgrading its broadband network in the country’s capital, Nairobi.

In addition to providing pay TV services and channels, Zuku also operates a cable network in Nairobi. The company has said it will invest KES220 million (€1.84 million) in upgrading this to deliver internet speeds of up to 50Mbps, according to local reports.

According to the reports, the upgrade is scheduled to be completed by the end of October. Wananchi Group CEO Richard Alden said that the move was prompted by strong growth in customer numbers, leading to a need to deliver additional capacity.
