Locals and security agencies had previously complained of the poor communication network in most parts of Lamu.
Mr Serian called on locals to take advantage of the availability of the network to alert the police or call for help whenever terrorists ambush the area.
Locals interviewed by the Nation on Tuesday said the move will greatly assist in fighting insecurity in the region.
Mr Serian said they will also fix more masts at Mararani and Milihoi in Mkunumbi.
