President William Ruto has urged satellite internet firm StarLink to work towards reducing the cost of internet access in the country.
Speaking on Saturday when he visited the StarLink/SpaceX factory in Los Angeles, United States, Ruto said the organization presents a promising solution for achieving universal internet access in Kenya by overcoming traditional infrastructure limitations.
The Head of State recognized Stalink’s ability to enhance high-speed connectivity, thus unlocking the full potential of the digital economy.
“Their investment has the ability to significantly enhance high-speed connectivity in remote villages, schools and various institutions across the country,” said Ruto.
Later, President Ruto met with Nicholas Weinstock, the President of Invention Studios.
They explored the possibility of American filmmakers filming in Kenya, potentially generating job opportunities and contributing to the growth of our film industry.
He also held talks with the Grammy Global Venture CEO Harvey Mason Jr. and President Panos Panay, advocated for the Grammy Africa Academy Headquarters to be hosted in Nairobi.
