We may be going back to the age of Net Neutrality


#1


#2

Do we even have Net Neutrality in Kenya?


#3

Nada :persevere::persevere::persevere: Safaricom can never…


#4

Yes Tunukiwa? Oooh my bad :persevere::persevere::persevere::persevere::persevere:

I guess on Faiba 4G and fiber ISPs


#5

Safaricom doesn’t know what Neutrality is.


#6

Safaricom is never because even their Tunukiwa offers prioritize some sites over others. I am not sure but I think Faiba home does better at neutrality.


#7

For what it is worth, certain websites have local caches in Kenya. YouTube, Netflix and ShowMax are perfect examples.

These sites tend to load much faster and the videos do not buffer a lot, especially if you are watching something that is trending in Kenya.


#8

Remember when they had video bundles that you could only use on showmax. Techweez covered it here. They seem to have quietly removed them but that bundle was definitely anti net-neutrality since Naspers was being given preferential treatment over other players.


#9

Except this will die in Congress (the equivalent of Kenya’s national assembly).

Our local market is too small for this to significantly affect us. Facebook and Airtel have made attempts at zero rating and yet the better funded telcos dominate market share.
