Kenya Power To Start Selling Fixed Internet – What We Know

Must Read

Kenya Power owns and operates most of the electricity transmission and distribution systems in the country and sells electricity to over 8 million customers, and has been leasing fibre-optic cables attached to its transmission lines to internet service providers.

According to Business Daily Africa, in the coming weeks, the electricity distributor will announce a package that will allow its corporate customers to buy internet and electricity as a bundle after running pilot tests.

“We will provide our corporate sector customers with a bundled service of electricity and internet,” the company told Business Daily in a statement.

Kenya Power will be taking on Safaricom, Wananchi Group (Zuku) and Jamii Telecoms that control 85.1 per cent of Kenya’s fixed data market.

A week ago, workers threatened a strike after the company resorted to laying off about 2 000 workers to cut costs and make up for lost revenue, after a 15% reduction in electricity tariff, according to Business Insider Africa.
