As per previous years, we focused on expanding fixed and mobile broadband coverage to meet growing demands for data connectivity and faster data speeds in the year under review. Driving growth for data connectivity and enhancing the experience of our customers was a key focus area for the business in FY20. This involved rolling out sites, especially 4G-enabled sites, migrating existing sites from microwave to fibre connections, and continuing with the aggressive expansion of our fibre optic network.
During the year, we rolled out an additional 365 2G-enabled sites and provide 96% of the population with access to 2G services. We also deployed an additional 368 3G-enabled sites, many of these were in rural areas and this equates to providing an additional two per cent of the population with coverage.
To support our ambition of digitising our customers, we continued our aggressive expansion of 4G-enabled sites during the year. We added 1 551 4G-enabled sites to the network and extended 4G services to an additional 20 per cent of the population as a result.
We are delighted to report that we added an additional 2 300 kilometres to our fibre optic network during the year. We continue to support businesses of all sizes and connected an additional 1 536 enterprise buildings. We also made good progress in terms of residential homes, passing an additional 42 105 houses and connecting 34 238 homes to the network. As a result, we have connected over 142 000 homes and 11 911 businesses to our fibre optic network to date.
We attribute this excellent progress to our ongoing strategic intent to become the digital services provider of choice for Kenyans. Accordingly, we set ourselves ambitious targets for the year and sustained our high levels of investment, with capital expenditure of KSh 36.1 billion.
