Kenya becomes the second country in Africa to launch Safaricom 5G Network

Mobile network operator Safaricom has launched a 5G network in Kenya, making it the second country in Africa to roll out the technology. The company has started the rollout in four towns, and expects to expand it to nine over the next year.

Safaricom CEO Peter Ndegwa described last week launch as “a major milestone for the country.”  The telco is implementing the project using technology from the Finnish company Nokia and the Chinese company Huawei

MTN and Vodacom launched 5G in South Africa last year. Telecommunications companies in five other African countries—Gabon, Lesotho, Nigeria, Uganda, Egypt and Morocco—are conducting internal trials for 5G, meaning it’s not yet available for public use.

While the new development makes Kenyans early adopters of 5G in Africa, questions remain over investor and market readiness for mass use of the technology across the continent. As a result, widespread adoption of 5G in the region, while a promising prospect, may be far-off.

Fifth generation standard

5G is the fifth generation technology standard for broadband cellular networks. It can also support up to 1 million connected devices per square kilometer, compared to up to 100,000 for 4G.

Safaricom’s introduction of the technology in Kenya is “an important step in Africa’s 5G journey,” says Kenechi Okeleke, the lead author of a 2019 report on 5G in sub-Saharan Africa by GSMA, an organization representing mobile network operators worldwide . “This move will draw a lot of attention to the potential of 5G in the region and the benefits it can bring to society,” he tells Quartz.

The initial focus will be on how 5G will enhance broadband connectivity for Safaricom, says Okeleke, director at GSMA’s research arm, GSMA Intelligence. However, he adds, given the company’s track record in tech innovation, many observers will be on the lookout for potential new use cases that Safaricom could develop for Africa’s unique challenges and customer needs.

Fiber optic-like connectivity

5G’s faster speeds bring fiber optic-like connectivity to homes—a broadband connection that can reach speeds of up to 940 megabits per second. This would be a game changer for African businesses and schools that do not have access to fiber-optic internet, especially in a post-Covid-19 world where activities including work, learning, and entertainment are increasingly happening online, Okeleke says.

The technology could enable new and existing technologies such as artificial intelligence and the internet of things—the interconnection via the internet of computing devices embedded in everyday objects—to have a transformative impact on business processes, helping drive productivity and efficiency, Okeleke says. This has the potential to spark innovative solutions, particularly in extractive sectors such as mining and oil and gas, he adds, and help financial services and logistics sectors in the continent.

Low penetration

Currently, only 3% of the world’s mobile phone connections are on 5G (Asia is in the lead, with 5% of mobile connections on 5G). But GSMA Intelligence estimates that by 2025, 5G will likely to cover a third of the world’s population.

It will take some time for Africa to catch up. Currently, around 51% of Africa’s mobile phone connections are on 3G, and GSMA Intelligence believes that it will remain dominant, with 5G connections making up only 3% of total mobile connections in Africa by 2025. South Africa’s 5G connections account for less than 1% currently.

Investor and market and readiness

Despite the expected growth and excitement over the potential of 5G in Africa, there are concerns about investor and market readiness for the technology. The investment outlay for 5G is very high for mobile phone networks, Okeleke says. Phones that can connect to 5G are also very expensive for consumers.

Uptake of 5G may also be slow, since 4G is enough to meet people’s data needs for day-to-day use. AI and VR, the strongest use cases for 5G because of the speed and lower latency it offer, aren’t yet common on the continent.

Still, Okeleke expects the need for 5G will grow quickly. “As these things become more commonplace in the region, then we are likely to see that stronger demand for 5G services in a way that saw that strong demand for 2G services in the early 2000s,” Okeleke says. “And it is that demand for 5G services that will improve the economics of investments into 5G networks.”

Best Tips on how to succeed- Ciscas

It is the nature of human to appreciate success when it knocks. Though somebody said...opportunity strikes only once…..it is everyone’s desire to enjoy it now and then, but mostly, it isn’t just a walk in the park. I loved a statement from one of the blogs I read recently that stated...if it was easy, everybody would be in it…this challenged me if not to inspire. Now I know that having tried is already an achievement. What you need is persistence as per this 10 Ways.. and also see this video on how to reach to your destiny

Is it true that money earned through hard ways is ‘sweeter’ than what you never struggled for?… I am not sure on this… Sometimes life is a bit unfair. One may work so hard yet success is negligible. However, that should not discourage one to move on. You never know what tomorrow has in store. So, keep moving as long as you don’t stop. Sometimes the speed doesn’t matter. If the snail managed to get into Noah’s Ark, play it cool, your destiny is definite, but you must keep it to the truck. As you can see here on Ways to success

What do I mean? Give yourself time to achieve what you want. If it is business or education, just go for it. There are some hurdles on the way, but they may be more of success than destruction. No matter how hard you try to jump over them, some need to be stepped on or knocked down to give you the way. Be patient…Rome was not built in a day…and a journey of hundred miles starts with a step. Keep going girl!..and that’s me!

Best deals on Black Friday

Do you wonder what black Friday is all about? What happens on this day? Why was is called Black Friday?

If you have ever been in such a fix, then you are not alone. Many people especially outside US where it is most celebrated are not aware of it.

In Africa, the new vocabulary is getting it’s meaning. I see now everyone is longing for the black Friday because of the goodies it comes with.

People do search for sellers or companies offering black Friday deals. By doing this, they buy the items cheaper than the normal price.

The sellers also increases their sales as many people will come out to buy during this day and so raising their profit.

So if you ever thought of black relating it with bad things, now you know.

Do you have anything else you can add? Feel free to leave a comment below.

Why business has been affected at Namanga -Tanzania border -Ciscas

The pandemic has made the smooth running of business at the border a bit hectic. Disagreement between Kenya and Tanzania on testing of corona virus has made the truck drivers spend days before they are cleared at the border. Some days ago, the two governments (kenya and Tanzania) tried to come up with a solution which is trying to work but not to the expectation of the traders.

The border used to be a busy place where even small business people were getting their catch. Fear of the novel virus has reduced the movement in and out of the neighbouring countries bringing a negative impact to the business sector.

Why I could not sleep-ciscasquapro

It is 12:50am…midnight or morning. Any way you may want to call it. I am supposed to be dead sleep by now, but here I am joining the dots.

I have been thinking why sometimes life is so unfair. Why some people are swimming in riches while others are drowning in poverty.

Others didn’t go beyond grade three and they own the best companies while some who have several degrees are still jobless.

Others started business from scratch and within a short time it became a big company while others still struggle to make theirs better even after years.

The list can go on and on till dawn, but my question still stands: why is life so unfair?

It is sometimes hard to wake up to a reality. The time when we used to enjoy our holidays is long gone. Every holiday had it’s style for celebrations. Sometimes we would prefer to go swimming on a cool afternoon after enjoying our favorite meals.

Enjoying the family union was the most interesting thing as this was the only day family members would retire from their busy schedule. It used to be fun! We could meet new friends as we explored the nature. We really miss those days!……click the link to see why we could not do it the normal way.

Why China?

We have been getting most of our products from China. Best herbs to treat our illness, electronics, latest phones,and anything else one can think of is imported from China. My worry is, did we also import the virus? I think it’s time to know things to import and those not to! It has been very hard to get rid of the virus!

Why it is not business as usual

It was a bee hive of activities in all the markets before almost everything turned upside down. The towns were full of life as business men woke up early to meet their targets. All over a sudden, the monster arrived. Yes , the corona virus.

This changed everything. The freedom of movement became a history to be read. New outfit of masks hijacked our comfort of breathing. Expression of love and care was left to mother and baby as no more shaking of hands was allowed. The new lifestyle was difficult to adapt….to continue.

5 reasons why parent cannot stay with their children|ciscasquapro

It has been a long time since schools were indefinitely closed due to Covid 19.
It was a surprise to many as this caught them unaware. How they had to swallow the bitter pill as there was no other option to save the children from the pandemic.
Since then, it has not been easy to stay with children for such a long time bearing in mind that some live in high populated areas.Some of the parents have said it openly why it has been hard to stay with their children for such a long time and it is their prayer this will come to an end soon.

This are some of the reasons they gave:
Children cannot learn by themselves without the help of the teacher. They don’t take parents seriously when they give the assignments . Some of the parents are not aware on what is taught in school. Others know little about the syllabus.

Controlling children has not been easy, This is because they are staying in small rooms and keeping children congested in a room for a whole day is not easy to them.They better go outside where they would have a wider space for their activities.

Some parents are still going to their working places, hence children are left unattended. They(the children)may take advantage of this and engage themselves with immoral behaviours which parent could not advocate for if they were around.

Some children are still too young to understand why they are being told that it is not right to play with their peers.Keeping them in the house all day is not that simple.

Then there are the teenagers who most of the time they feel they are always right. This brings conflict between them and the parents.Sometimes they take advantage of the absence of the parent to do immoral things which could land them in danger.The parents have to deep more in their pockets for the unexpected budget.

It is a prayer to every parent that things will be back to normal soonest. As parents should also know this.

Feel free to add other reasons as you comment.also see
