And you can see Safaricom is still the most expensive nearly twice or thrice as expensive as the other networks. And well they happen to have the most customers. Instead of focusing on price wars, they are focusing on quality of service delivery.
Well Telkom and Airtel did that but it’s not working on their favor. But let’s wait for Airtel 4G since 3G is barely even working right now. I might sign the contract for postpaid if they don’t change the current state of the service (unlimited bundles).
Muthaiga, Karen, Langata, and Ngong Road - these are one of Orange’s strongholds. Anything new Orange does, the strongholds come first.
It took them like 3 years before they fully upgraded out area to 3G. Now they have launched 4G and the same thing has happened. We have no 4G in our area. Not just our area but nearly 80% of eastlands. The signal is either poor for use or barely unavailable.
Unfortunately, some of my former classmates ( one is a programmer at Zuku and the other a programmer too at Safaricom) told me that the persons responsible with network expansion largely concentrate on surburbs because they feel that is where the money is.
They don’t even conduct a market analysis to determine who needs what. For example, when I managed to marshall support from over 200 neighbours to try and request Safaricom/Zuku/Liquid to give us fiber (we were even ready to pay upfront) they all refused.
But wait mmoja aingie ndiyo utaona wote wakikimbia sasa.
