In the quarterly sector statistics report by the CA, the body said that mobile data has continually dominated the data market with a registered subscriber base of 18.6 million from 16.3 million, representing a 14.3 percent growth and an increase of 1.3 percent.
“The market share for other fixed/wireless data/internet subscriptions for the top ten operators in the market experienced mixed trends during the period under review with some operators gaining in market share with others decreasing,” – CA.
Zuku, a company that provides broadband, Pay TV and voice telephony, has a 46.8 percent of the market share, Techmoran reports. Liquid Telecom trails Zuku with a market share of 15.3 percent while Telkom Kenya ranks third with 10.1 percent respectively.
Terrestrial wireless data subscriptions declined by 7.9 percent during the time period, a situation that the CA said could have been, “attributed to substitution of connection to other access modes such as Fibre optic.”
Satellite subscriptions had a 17.4 percent growth while fibre optic subscriptions remained steady with 87,838 subscriptions registered, representing an 8.1 percent increase during the period.
