Safaricom set for 5G launch this year

17 Feb 2020

Safaricom, Kenya’s largest mobile operator by subscribers, has completed testing and trials of 5G services, and plans to roll out a commercial network later this year. Business Daily quotes the firm’s Acting CEO Michael Joseph as saying that it will initially target major urban centres in select cities with the new 5G service. He added that the launch will enable Safaricom to further expand its data business and counter slower growth in revenue from traditional voice services.
