Loss making KPLC says they will start selling high-speed internet in bid to diversify business and revenue streams.
This comes months after a successful trial run that has had the company settle to run the affordable internet to cooperates first before they make any moves in homes.
According to a report by Business Daily dated Monday, March 7, indicates that corporate customers would be given a chance to purchase a power bundle inclusive of internet service from the utility firm.
“We will provide our corporate sector customers with a bundled service of electricity and internet,” Kenya Power stated.
The cost of the new package is set to be announced in a matter of weeks. Kenya Power noted that it would unveil affordable services to Kenyans in order to gain market share since several internet providers are already dominating the business.
“Kenya Power will leverage on our vast network to tap into the market…we will offer the corporates the option of using our internet for their primary use or redundancy,” the company added.
The company started by laying over 4,000 km of fibre in 2010. They have since been using the cables to operate the national power grid and leases the excess capacity to telecommunications companies.
