President Uhuru Kenyatta has finally lauched the Loon internet Baloons that was aided by the collaboration between the Telkom Company limited, and Google Firm Alphabet which will see mobile phone users in 14 counties access 4G network.
Uhuru speaking via Live video Whatsapp chat in Baringo urged Kenyans to take advantage of the newly launched system to improve their social economic activities.
This comes after Telkom Kenya partnered with Google parent firm Alphabet at an undisclosed amount in the first ever commercial deployment of loon internet balloons in the world.
Joe Mucheru described the whole launching process as historic and our Country continues to have a lead in terms of technology in the current World.
Uhuru stated in his statement, “You now have a faster internet network. You can now sell your honey to the rest of the world. Take full advantage of it.”
The newly launched technology was used by United States of America to provide network to residents of puerto rico after they had been invaded by a hurricane.
The company uses ballons which operate wthin 6o, 000 feet above sea level to provide 4G network to areas with low population.
