Tatu City Internet Startup Fahari Link Bridges the Digital Divide for Thousands of Underserved Residents

TATU CITY, Kenya, May 1, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Rendeavor, Africa's largest builder of new cities and owner and developer of Tatu City, the 5,000-acre new city on the doorstep of Nairobi, has created a new company to provide high-speed internet connectivity to thousands of digitally underserved residents in nearby towns and informal settlements.

By investing in critical digital infrastructure, Fahari Link will provide low connection fees, daily internet plans, reliable internet connectivity and technical support to the citizens of Kiambu County, including those earning subsistence wages.

In addition to connecting homes, Fahari Link will deploy Wi-Fi Internet connections in public spaces such as shopping malls and sports fields, ensuring that digital access is available to everyone, including mobile device users.

“With Fahari Link, we are not just connecting people, we are connecting aspirations, opportunities and futures,” said Alex Kahu, deputy country director of Rendeavor in Kenya, owner and developer of Tatu City. "By expanding affordable internet and broadband services to our neighboring community, Tatu City ensures that no one is left behind in Africa's digital future."

The transformative initiative was announced at an event chaired by the Hon. Gina M. Raimondo, United States Secretary of Commerce, at the American Chamber of Commerce Business Summit at Windsor Golf Hotel

In December 2022, President Biden launched the Digital Transformation with Africa (DTA) initiative, committing more than $350 million to expand digital access and literacy across the African continent. With a projected population of 1.7 billion people in Africa by 2030, doubling internet connectivity to reach 1 billion users is a key goal. Digital access is especially important for women and girls who rely on the Internet to learn new skills, address health disparities, and improve the overall quality of life for themselves and their families.

“Through DTA, we are working to provide technical assistance and investment that supports private sector-led projects to expand digital access, increase digital literacy, and strengthen digitally enabling environments across Africa,” said Secretary Raimondo.

Fahari Link has invested heavily in acquiring wholesale bandwidth from global internet service providers to extend its reach to areas beyond Tatu City, including the informal communities of BTL, OJ and Rutoro. It will serve Ruiru, the sixth fastest growing city in Africa, as well as the communities of Oaklands, Murera, Kamakis and other parts of Kiambu County. In total, Fahari's services will be available to nearly one million people.

"This is great news for people in the surrounding communities around Tatu City, including BTL and Gitothua. This development will make a big difference to people and businesses, giving them the tools they need to develop, grow and prosper in a world increasingly digital," said Hon John Njogu, MCA Gitothua Ward, Kiambu County.

Tatu Telecom, Tatu City's telecommunications company, has laid over 40 km of fiber optic cables and currently serves over 1,000 residential and commercial customers, including schools and local, regional and multinational businesses within Tatu City. Tatu Telecom offers Internet with record browsing speeds, reliability and robust troubleshooting measures facilitated by in-house engineers. Tatu Telecom has also built an open access network, allowing multiple Internet service providers to serve Tatu City residents and businesses.
