That is the reason why JTL has acquired a 4G license. In areas where JTL are operating you will hardly hear of any complaints. Sometimes back when I was working in Parklands, our ISP was Zuku paying 10,000pm for 20mbps at that time. But the connection was so intermittent. You have internet from Monday to Wednesday and the rest of the week there is hardly any connection. After a few months we switched to JTL and issues to do with internet downtime became a history.
I think they made a wise decision to acquire a 4G license and extend services to GSM. I mean, Safaricom is using predatory tactics. They are targeting areas where Liquid Telecom and Zuku are offering FTTH and trying to beg these customers to switch from their ISP and pick up Safaricom fiber.
I think they even went as far as offering free newspapers everyday to estates where they have pitched tent. Some people even complained about the persistent pestering of Safaricom team that was deploying FTTH. They would literally knock doors on a daily basis begging for you to accept their fiber.
JTL is making a wise move. They will not sit back and watch Safaricom prey on their market and let it pass. That is why Bob Collymore is crying foul over that 700MHz spectrum because it means JTL will take advantage of that spectrum to offer data services at cheaper prices knowing that it would be next to impossible to clog the spectrum.
