Internet connectivity to increase rural road delivery

Liquid Telecom Kenya will inter connect Kenya Rural Roads Authority (KeRRA) offices countrywide to accelerate road bidding and cut communication costs.

The new connection will facilitate the complete digitization of KeRRA’s operations through an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) platform that will be accessible from all 47 regional offices.

In a press statement, Liquid Telecom Kenya National Account Manager, Francis Otieno said that access to high-speed internet will accelerate road bidding and commissioning and reduce costs for the agency allowing it to focus more funds on road construction.

“Our comprehensive point of presence (PoP) network across Kenya can now provide networks for organizations at enormous speed. We are providing last mile connectivity through fibre links KeRRA’s offices and its headquarters,” said Otieno

He added that the offices will also be served by high-speed wireless broadband links and with radio internet links.

KeRRA’s Information Communication Technology (ICT) Manager Fred Bitta said the new communications platform will also increase speed of decision making at the authority.

“The new connectivity across all our regional offices and headquarters will allow us leverage on digital platforms and solutions such as video conferencing and Voice over Internet (VoIP) services to enhance and speed up information sharing,” said Biita.

Chief Executive Officer, Liquid Telecom Kenya Adil El Youssefi stated that the achievement of reaching into every corner of Kenya has positioned them to be able to offer national solutions in a way that is increasingly transforming lives like WIFI in schools among others.
