Poa! internet, a community internet service provider (ISP) in Kenya, has commenced a strategic expansion plan that will double its network coverage area by the end of April, after being ranked 4th place with 7.5% market share in 2019 by the Communications Authority (CA).
The new networks will then be followed in June by the launch of six additional networks across new parts of Kenya, making the ISP five times their current size in just a few months.
“Poa is already the fastest growing community ISP in Kenya,” said Andy Halsall, CEO of poa! Internet, “but we are now really accelerating our expansion plans to increase our network reach to hundreds of thousands more people across Kenya”.
The expansion programme is set to rapidly move poa! up the rankings to become one of Kenya’s top tier internet companies.
By the end of April, poa! will cover new areas including Ndumberi, Githunguri, Dagoretti, Waithaka, Kinoo, Kikuyu and Racecourse.
“Our entire business model is based on continually delivering low-cost unlimited internet access to those areas that are otherwise poorly served,” said Andy. “We are expecting to maintain our current exponential growth throughout 2019, and confidently expect to enter the country’s top tier internet providers during this year.”
