Elon Musk Tech Firm Set To Rival Safaricom, Zuku In Kenya

Elon Musk’s satellite Internet provider Starlink said that it will begin operations in Kenya in the second quarter of this year, putting other participants in the market, such as Safaricom and Zuku, up against one another.

The tech company owned by the multibillionaire entrepreneur said it was “waiting service coverage or regulatory permission.”
Kenyans, however, can purchase the service and deposit Ksh12,260 ($99), which is completely refundable if authorized.

The multinational claimed that it will begin to focus on, among other towns, Nairobi, Kisumu, Mombasa, and Nakuru over the three months ending in June.

The company would encounter fierce rivalry from several industry giants upon entering Kenya.
