Safaricom will Friday launch Kenya’s first fifth-generation (5G) mobile
internet services targeting major urban centres, making it the inaugural
operator to offer commercial and superfast services in the region. The firm
last year completed testing and trials for the upgraded network as the
company seeks to capitalise on burgeoning mobile Internet use in the
country. The leading telco Thursday revealed the Friday launch of the 5G
technology that will be supplied by Nokia Corporation and Huawei—which has
been the subject of increased scrutiny in the Western world over the
introduction of the high speed networks.
