Liquid plots 1Q14 IPTV launch in Nairobi

20 Nov 2013

Liquid Telecom Kenya (formerly Kenya Data Networks [KDN]) is set to launch an IPTV service in Nairobi in the first quarter of 2014, IT Web Africa reports. Services will be offered using the ‘Ipidi’ brand name. The move forms part of a concerted effort by Mauritius-based Liquid Telecom Group to shift the Kenyan firm’s focus back to the residential sector, and compete with market leader, Zuku, which offers triple-play services over its hybrid fibre-coaxial (HFC) cable network in 15 districts of Nairobi.
