Econet still troubled

12 Apr 2005

According to the East African Standard, Kenya’s newly licenced cellco Econet Wireless could have its licence taken away following claims that it does not have the financial capability to roll out its network, despite the company having recently affirmed plans to launch services before the end of 2005. The government has said it will decide on whether to cancel the licence next week.
