The Kenya Communication Authority (CA) says the mobile data subscriptions in Kenya has witnessed a 14.3 percent growth during the first quarter of 2015 compared to the previous quarter.

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.
