Airtel Kenya has revealed that it will invest over Kshs.19 billion ($190 Million) into its infrastructure over the next three years.

Techmoran reports that the infrastructure investment plan is to enable the telecom operator cover network upgrades for voice and data services, brand equity development, customer service outlets, staff training programs and community development programs.

Techcabal reported earlier that Airtel Kenya had completed the first phase of its network upgrade in the Nairobi area by upgrading its 4G LTE network. The second phase is ongoing and it’s to provide a more reliable and faster internet connection. The company also plans to make 4G LTE available in major towns across Kenya by the end of 2015.

Airtel Kenya is also ramping up its community development program including the ‘Internet for School’ initiative which has so far reached over 130 schools.

Recently, Airtel sold off its tower assets in five African countries for over $1.3 billion after the company indicated that it has incurred debts running its operations in Africa.
