Zuku is currently the market leader in connected internet within the country but has increasingly been facing stiff competition from Safaricom which enjoys a massive capital at its disposal. The likes of Jamii Telkom which entered the segment a little earlier have already been over-taken by Safaricom which not only has appealing prices but rapidly expanding its network within the country.
Safaricom is also continuing to extend its fibre coverage to more than 15,000 additional homes across the country within the next two months. Some of the areas to be covered include parts of Kisumu and Thika, Kizingo in Mombasa, and Kinoo, Komarock and Ruaka in Nairobi. The service currently reaches more than 300,000 homes across the country, with more than 107,000 customers connected across Nairobi, Mombasa, Eldoret, Kisumu, Nakuru, Nyeri and Thika.
