Jamii Telecommunications and Safaricom form strategic partnership.

Also in today’s Business Daily, Jamii Telecommunications and Safaricom have entered into a strategic partnership so that Safaricom can leverage their data infrastructure to reach more Internet users. The partnership will therefore see Safaricom competing for more and more retail and business Internet customers by using Jamii Telecommunications wireless, satellite and fibre optic infrastructure in Nairobi and Mombasa where they are (currently) operational. This will clearly open up more competition in the marketplace and enable Safaricom to penetrate a larger segment of high margin business users with its Safaricom Business offeirngs.

    Am just wondering at what point costs for the internet connection will be so competitive as the case is for mobile network subscriptions with regard to airtime costs.It is high time kenyans got a better deal in terms of speed and quality of internet connection at affordable rates.

    I’m still a bit sceptical about the speeds that we’ll get with F.O.C. As they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating! However, for us in shags, the best option is to use GSM data services hence I don’t know how much faster dl/up speeds we can get. Be that as it may, I’ll probably still go on working at night.

    @Moses: Is Safaricom developing some sort of app store? I’ve received promotional sms from them about downloading stuff from their wapsite. Most of that stuff I can get it for free with a bit of ingenuity from various sources on the net. They need to offer more quality to tempt me to use my money.
