For those planning to visit Kenya, there are several luxury resorts to choose from when it comes to lodging. There are also numerous activities to participate in, such as visiting the City Safari in Nairobi, spending time a the Karen Blixen Museum, or even hanging out at the Nairobi Java House to enjoy some delectable coffee. Regardless of what tourists decide to do while visiting Kenya, they will likely want to access the internet at some point. Fortunately, there are many broadband cable providers in the area, however, the installation of this service didn’t come without sacrifice for Kenyan residents.
Several years ago, undersea internet cables were installed, which required that a significant amount of the area’s landscaping be destroyed. Kenyan residents were warned of the expected, noise, dust, waste, in addition to other major impacts, in advance. Despite advance warning, it didn’t make dealing with the actual damage or any inconveniences any easier. Residents and business owners were horrified at the state of the once beautiful landscaping once construction of this project began. Kenya prides itself on its attractive, alluring and vast landscapes, and having them destroyed contributed to business loss, as tourists were dissatisfied with the appearance and opted to go elsewhere.
Most Kenyans in the areas affected agree that they were grateful for finally having access to rapid, high quality internet services, but the sacrifices were almost too much to bear. It has taken a great deal of time and effort to repair the landscapes, and although they have improved dramatically, they haven’t yet been transformed to their previous superior state. In order to accomplish this goal, more time and hard work will be necessary, and only then will Kenya regain the perfect landscapes that it once boasted about.
