A new innovation hub is set to opened up in Mombasa.
The project, known as SwahiliPOT will benefit the technology and cultural community thanks to a partnership between SEACOM, Cisco Systems and the National Museums of Kenya.
The hub will be located in an office space donated by the National Museums of Kenya.
SEACOM Managing Director for Kenya Joseph Muriithi said Mombasa has been a pivotal part of SEACOM’s business since they established a point of presence here and wanted to give back to the local community by providing a service where they can experience broadband technology and utilize it to develop business ideas and other income generating project.
The company will provide a 40Mb connection of their high-speed Internet Service for free and will also construct a perimeter wall between its landing station and the fort to secure the sea side.
SEACOM will also host services to the hardware which is being provided by Cisco who were brought on board by the ICT Authority.
