    Broadband internet provider Jamii Telecommunications (JTL), previously just an Internet service provider (ISP) has launched their 4G LTE mobile network – Faiba4G. The new network will offer Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and data services. • JLT entered the Kenyan telecoms space in 2004 providing wholesale and retail data services via Fibre To The Home (FTTH) and fixed wireless networks, satellite and WiMAX. • Faiba4G coverage currently includes areas in Nairobi, Thika, Machakos, Nakuru, Eldoret, Mombasa, Athi River and Syokimau with plans to extend across Kenya. • Faiba4G will offer subscribers free on-net calls for life, granted the subscriber has an active data bundle and 1-hour unlimited ‘Fisi’ data bundles for KSH150 (approximately US$1.50). • Kenyan’s mobile market has a mobile SIM penetration rate of 71% and is dominated by Vodacom-owned Safaricom, which leads the market with a 75% market share. • The entrance of international mobile network operators Airtel (2002), Orange (now Telkom Kenya - 2013) and Yu (2008) failed to challenge Safaricom’s dominance, which led to Orange selling off their Kenyan subsidiary and Airtel acquiring Yu in 2015.
