Any relation between 'New'Telkom Kenya and Telkom South Africa. Their logos and colours looks almost a like.


No relation

Safaricom is finishing Zuku on the internet to the home business.
Strong competitor to safaricom will only emerge if the other companies begin to run their businesses professionally and strategically

Zuku did not have sufficient muscle.. JTL is a better fit for such battles since it is held in proxy by the old man. I speak in code


JTL is in survival mode.It has lost a big chunk of it's business recently and is on the verge of closing down.
I'm an insider of the on-goings in JTL

Dear insider, do you know anyone by the name Mwaniki


I know Bor and their head of Networks. Was with him a month ago and we talked at length

Here we are.. Calls at KES 1.80 to any network.. Telkom Kenya reborn http://www.businessdaily...57924-afq3p3/index.html



Dead On Arrival!
same mistake made by Airtel and repeated by Orange. It has no effect in Kenyan market. And Safaricom knows this very well.


Money is in the data business where average spend is higher

Serious things happening at Telkom http://www.businessdaily...46822-s7tl2p/index.html

They will definitely eat into Airtel's market. Safcom as the main sim card will never be easily replaced but sim card number 2 will always be rotated. This is where Airtel and Telkom will battle it out.

These must have been the same kind of thoughts BBK management had about other banks in the mid 2000

Safaricom is different from Barclays. Plus these prices given by Telkom are just slightly better and in some cases the same as what Safaricom offers. Everytime Safcom see people migrating they always adjust...

I know what you are saying and agree that Safaricom is strong but Telkom is trying.. The partnership with Dstv on home fibre is an example of innovative thinking. The white men are good at strategy

Telkom Kenya is set to receive a Sh4.1 billion ($40 million) loan from the European Investment Bank to boost infrastructure and mobile money network.

The European Investment Bank (EIB) said the loan, which is still going through appraisal, will only form part of the funding for Telkom Kenya’s Sh9.34 billion ($92 billion) network expansion project.

Telkom kenya launches mobile money T-kash that reduces chances of sending money to wrong person or paying wrong Paybill. With T-kash you confirm a transaction BEFORE entering your PIN & completing the transaction,after that you enter PIN and you're given a few seconds to confirm the transaction.

I ask myself if this is the USP? reducing the chances of sending money to the wrong recipient? if so then I wait to see if there is any uptake

Should have spent half of this on the network instead. Mobile money is an uphill task in the current market conditions but data war is much more winnable. Anyway lets wait and see what moves TKash has in store for us.

Too little too late.

the MPESA train gathered steam a long time ago, trying to compete there is rather a fruitless endeavour

If a similar product offering with a strong agent network, at a lower tarrif occurs, then the unthinkable may just become a reality. Safaricom must not take Telkom lightly

Mindless copying won't take them anywhere. Safcom is safe given Telkom's history.

Waste of funds...

even if a competitor came which was 10-20% better than MPESA, it would never catch up imo, at this rate any competitor needs to change the game completely. orders of magnitude better/different if you want to stop this train

Telkom kenya strategy is to dislodge airtel and become number 2 and the owners to get a return on their investments.
They know they can't dislodge safaricom from top position.

MPESA is just 11 yrs old. Its never too late to compete. Truly safaricom is a huge titanic.

The reality is that M-Pesa is the preferred (mobile money) choice for many vendors. Many vendors/establishments accept just M-Pesa that one has no choice but to use M-Pesa.

I prefer using Airtel Money where possible coz it's cheaper BUT my choices are limited so I default to Safcom.
