Chinese ICT firm eyes Kenya’s growing high-speed internet market

NAIROBI, (Xinhua) -- Chinese firm FiberHome Technologies Group is seeking to help Kenya to digitize its economy through supplying modern telecom equipment, officials said on Friday.

Liu Jie, the firm’s manager at Representative Office of Africa told Xinhua in Nairobi that it wants to partner with local telecom operators to supply them with the latest fiber optic technology.

“We are willing to share our experience from the global fibre optic market to help to expand broadband access in Kenya, in order to bridge the digital divide, and drive the development of Kenya by ICT technologies,” Liu said.

“We would like to establish long term relations with both telecom operators and government in order to make Kenya become the digital capital of Africa,” he said on the sidelines of the first China-Africa Industrial Capacity Cooperation Exposition. 

FiberHome Technologies, which was established in 1974, is among the leading suppliers of fibre optic communication and ICT solutions in the world, with more than 40 overseas subsidiaries for serving technical solution and service for operators and ICT partners. 

Liu said that his firm played a significant role in helping China, and some overseas countries such as Malaysia, to replace its traditional copper wires with a modern fiber optic network capable of delivering high speed internet and abundant services.

The East African nation is currently expanding its national fibre optic network in order to promote the uptake of broadband internet in the country.

All the major telecom operators are currently establishing broadband networks that will connect households with fiber cables. Liu noted that fibre optic is the future of technology because of its ability to provide fast reliable internet.

FiberHome Technologies, which established its Kenyan operations since 2014, is currently undertaking a feasibility study to set up a local assembly plant to supply telecom equipment to the East and Central Africa region. 

Liu added that his company is able to deliver cutting edge solutions because it devotes ten percent of its annual revenues to research and development.
