Mawingu Expands Network to Taveta Town, Taita Taveta County

Mawingu reaches 26 connected counties, extends network to Taveta, focusing on underserved regions for affordable Internet.

Mawingu has announced the extension of its network to Taveta Town in Taita Taveta County, Kenya. This move not only enhances connectivity for households and businesses but also marks a significant stride towards Mawingu’s vision of making meaningful Internet access available to all Kenyans.

This brings the number of counties to 26 that the firm has so far connected across the country.

In its initial progress update for 2024, Mawingu’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Farouk Ramji says:

Our expansion into Taveta Town marks another milestone met towards our long-term vision of making meaningful connectivity accessible to more Kenyans. The digital economy in the country is rapidly expanding and we want to support more Kenyans to tap into the knowledge and connections that it provides.

Mr. Farouk Ramji, Chief Executive Officer, Mawingu

Already operational in 26 counties and with more than 15,000 active customers, Mawingu remains committed to connecting towns and urban centres which have not been well served and generally neglected by other providers.

We aim to continue providing connectivity access to these areas, which have traditionally not been given primary priority due to the high capital cost and logistical complexities involved in ensuring a stable, reliable, and affordable service. This is in line with our long-term vision of offering meaningful Internet connectivity, at very competitive price points comparative to other service providers, by building sustainable, flexible infrastructure in underserved regions.

Mr. Farouk Ramji, Chief Executive Officer, Mawingu

Apart from Mawingu customers getting to access meaningful Internet, the firm is testing fibre in some existing markets, as it seeks to further improve Internet quality in the coming months.

Mawingu’s aim is not to simply drop an Internet cable at someone’s doorstep. We seek to help our customers access new opportunities for work, education, entertainment, and social connections through the power of the Internet. Our company’s mission is driven by this very purpose: Open Opportunities.

Mr. Farouk Ramji, Chief Executive Officer, Mawingu

Mawingu seeks to combine wireless and fibre technology, as well as solar power, to distribute low-cost, affordable, and reliable Internet to its customers.

Mawingu remains committed to going the extra mile to truly meet our customers at their connectivity point of need. To this end, we are firmly focused on expediting our mid-term growth strategy of expanding our connectivity to additional counties across Kenya this year.

Mr. Farouk Ramji, Chief Executive Officer, Mawingu
