Final Project Report: Promises of Fibre-Optic Broadband in the Kenyan Tourism and Tea Sectors

My colleagues Professor Timothy Waema and Charles Katua at the University of Nairobi have recently finished a report describing and summarising some of their research into the effects of changing connectivity in the Kenyan tea and tourism sectors.

You can find the full report below, and we would welcome any feedback that you might have:

Waema, T. and Katua, C. 2014. The Promises of Fibre-Optic Broadband in Tourism and Tea Sectors: A Pipeline for Economic Development in East Africa.

The report comes out of our larger project looking at ‘development’ and broadband internet access in East Africa. In the next few months, Chris Foster, Nicolas Friederici, and I will also be releasing reports looking at changing connectivity in the tea and tourism sectors of Rwanda, and the implications of changing connectivity on Kenya and Rwanda’s Business Process Outsourcing sector.
