Safaricom expands to off er home surveillance

Safaricom plans to expand into
the home surveillance business, its
Chief Financial Officer said yesterday.

CFO Sateesh Kamath said the mobile
service provider intends to bank
on its fast-rising fi bre optic network
segment, also known as fi xed data,
to provide the service.

Fourth quarter
sector statistics from the Communication
Authority show that
Safaricom’s fixed data market share
stands at 21.2 per cent, up from 7.1
per cent in June 2013.

The good showing comes as the
top three telcos on basis of market
share give internet providers a run
for their money as the battle to lead
