A visit by KENET to 10 Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVETs) Institutions in Western Kenya, from Bomet to Baringo revealed the increasing need for Internet services in these colleges. The five-day (Sep 12-16) visit by the KENET team provided an opportunity for KENET to assess the institution’s connectivity to the KENET internet as well as listen to their needs. The survey found that the increasing need for Internet connectivity was attributed to factors such as increasing student population, expansion of curriculum and facilities.
