Telkom aiming for fixed wireless target

23 Sep 2007

Telkom Kenya has launched a new promotion of its fixed wireless access (FWA) services in a bid to reach 200,000 customers by year-end. The firm currently has around 160,000 subscribers on its CDMA-based FWA networks, but is hoping to reach its target by offering heavily subsidised handsets and offering daily cash prizes for new customers throughout December, Nairobi’s Business Daily reports. With Telkom still awaiting regulatory approval of its full mobile concession, the country’s two cellular operators – Safaricom and Celtel – are claiming that it is acting illegally by offering wireless services over the CDMA network.
