Econet has its licence restored

10 Dec 2004

Econet Wireless Kenya has had its mobile network operating licence restored by Kenya’s High Court. The government had temporarily cancelled Econet’s 15-year concession at the beginning of December because it had failed to pay an instalment of its licence fee. Econet says it will now go ahead with plans to invest USD70 million in its wireless network rollout.
