We believe in offering our customers innovative products and services that allows them to live their lives worry-free by staying connected to their friends and family, do their business, study and be entertained,” said Airtel’s Managing Director, Prasanta Das Sarma.

Recent statistics by the industry regulator, Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) have shown an upward trajectory of mobile subscriptions across the country, which stands at 64.4 million as at June 30, 2021, up from 62 million as March 31, 2021.

The increase in mobile subscriptions has been attributed to the reactivation of SIM cards especially during the schools’ closure due to Covid-19, as well as data promotions that ran during the same period. The increasing demand for internet use continues to be fueled by the hybrid work systems that allow for work-from-home options, e-commerce, and increased access to entertainment on mobile devices as well as digitization of government services.
