This is the latest info from the Communications Commission of Kenya.
….. its now official, Zain was sharp to wait for the row between Orange and GoK to settle, nice things have come their way….

The information communication technology sector has experienced tremendous growth in the recent years. With the maturity of the Kenyan communications market, consumers are increasingly demanding access to broadband services. As a result the move to 3G is inevitable particularly for the telecommunication sub-sector.

3G offers higher data speeds, more security, and more variety of services than the current 2G services. The bandwidth available to 3G devices gives rise to applications not previously available to mobile phone users.

In view of this, CCK will on Friday 25th June 2010 present Zain Kenya with its 3G License making it the second company in Kenya to offer the service.

Present at the cheque presentation will be CCK Director General, Charles J.K. Njoroge and Zain Kenya CEO, Rene Meza.
